MORI Building Digital Art Museum[edit]

TeamLab Borderless is jointly operated by Mori Building Co., Ltd and TeamLab. It opened on 21 June 2018 in Tokyo, Japan.[1][2]

TeamLab’s exhibition Massless was the opening project of the Amos Rex Museum in Helsinki, Finland in 2018.

The second digital museum was opened in Shanghai on November 5, 2019.[3]

In September 2020, the exhibition began at Dongdaemun Design Plaza(DDP) in Seoul, South Korea. It is well received by many people for its new experience exhibition that has not been experienced before. Thanks to this support, the exhibition will be extended in Seoul until August 2021.[4]

Digital artwork[edit]

TeamLab creates digital artwork which is based on the concept of borderless, and integrates advanced technologies. The exhibitions are powered by EPSON digital technology.[5]

TeamLab projects aim to show the relationship between nature and artificial creations, immersing the recipient’s body in an interactive world.

TeamLab Borderless museum features a collaborative creative space Future Park and Tea House.

Steve Aoki has described the museum as “a virtual reality/augmented reality/fantasy theme park.”[6][7]

In late 2020 TeamLab premiered "Resonating Life in the Acorn Forest" a permanent art instillation at the Kadokawa Culture Museum at Tokorozawa Sakura Town in Tokorozawa, Japan.

Situated in the Musashino forest[8] it consists of color-changing ovoid shapes in the woods which respond which to touch and wind.[9]

During the day the silver ovoid shapes reflect reflect their forest surround but at night the trees in the part of the woods where the instillation is placed are individually flooded with colored light as are the sculptuL interactive shapes.[10]
