teamLab (f. 2001) is an interdisciplinary art collective founded in 2001 in Tokyo, whose team includes several hundred specialists. At the heart of their practice lies the belief that art created using digital technology can bring people together through shared experiences. Their immersive, colourful installations transcend the boundaries between art and science to encourage meaningful interactions with both the work and other people. As we move around the space, our very actions—along with those of other participants—provoke flowers to bloom, waterfalls to change the course of their flow, and butterflies to twirl in the air. We are reminded that there is strength in the collective and are invited to reconnect with the world and marvel at its beauty.
teamLab has two long-term exhibitions in Tokyo: the long-term museum teamLab Planets and the permanent space teamLab Borderless, with several more planned around the world in coming years. teamLab Borderless was the most visited single-artist museum exhibition in the world in its inaugural year, welcoming 2.3 million visitors. Works by teamLab are also featured in the permanent collections of the Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide; the Amos Rex, Helsinki; the Borusan Contemporary Art Collection, Istanbul; the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; the Asia Society Museum, New York the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco; and the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney.
