Stunning digital installations encourage creativity, play and immersion at Silicon Valley art show

by Kim Megson | 15 Feb 2016

Japanese digital art collective teamLab have partnered with Silicon Valley gallery Pace Art + Technology to create a large-scale interactive art exhibition described as a “digital playground for all ages”.

The exhibition, called Living Digital Space and Future Parks, features 20 innovative art pieces spread across several rooms and 20,000sq ft (1,850sq m) in the Californian gallery.

The show encourages participants to embrace their curiosity by interacting directly with the technology on show in a number of creative ways.

Among the works on display is Crystal Universe, which invites viewers to explore a three-dimensional light space while their movements shift the light particles – creating a constantly-changing digital sculpture.

Another installation, Black Wave, simulates the movement of water in an almost transparent computer-generated space, creating the illusion of waves which float in the air.

Other exhibits let visitors set off 3D fireworks with their smartphone, visit a digital cafe of the future and experience an aquarium where children draw sea creatures which then come to life and begin swimming around a virtual sea.

“We hope the universality of our works’ themes – creativity, play, exploration, immersion, life, and fluidity – will seep into the broader conscience,” said Toshiyuki Inoko from teamLab. “We are particularly excited to debut several of these works in Silicon Valley, one of the indisputable heartlands for innovation, bold thinking and risk-taking.”

The exhibition will run until July 1, 2016.
