The Japanese design firm teamLab has announced a 2,000 square meter exhibition at La Villette, Paris. It plans on forming a vast space allowing visitors to interact with a digital world through their own bodies. Named “”Au-Delà des Limites” or “Beyond the Limits,” the showcase blurs the lines of reality and creates multiple installations representing different realms. Visitors will be able to walk through virtual waterfalls and natural wonders.
The presentation will be available from May 4 to September 4, launching right before Japonismes 2018, a cultural event marking the 160th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Japan and France.
teamLab (f. 2001, Tokyo, by Toshiyuki Inoko) is an interdisciplinary group of ultra-technologists whose collaborative practice seeks to navigate the confluence of art, technology, design and the natural world. Rooted in the tradition of ancient Japanese Art and contemporary forms of anime, teamLab operates from a distinctly Japanese sense of spatial recognition, investigating human behavior in the information era and proposing innovative models for societal development
