‘teamLab borderless’ — a monumental museum featuring a collection of teamLab’s 50 original artworks and interactive installations — opens in huangpu district, shanghai on november 5, 2019. the idea behind the museum is to break all boundaries between human and nature, and to create a seamless interaction between the artworks. ‘artworks move out of rooms, communicate with other works, influence, and sometimes intermingle with each other’, says teamLab.

without a map, visitors will immerse themselves in the vast space and wander through the ‘four worlds’ that make up the museum. each world is designed by teamLab to provide unique experiences: ‘borderless world’ showcases many of teamLab’s previously exhibited installation pieces; ‘microcosmoses’ depicts a community of moving light vehicles; ‘forest of lamps’ consists of hundreds of lit lanterns below and above the ground; and a virtual tea drinking experience at the ‘en tea house’.

the immense light sculpture made up of more than 1000 moving lights, ‘microcosmoses’ world will be ‘an experience as yet encountered by humanity’, describes teamLab. the autonomous light vehicles, in the form of a glass sphere, move simultaneously throughout the space on a rail. the vehicles change speeds and colors in response to each other within proximity and depending on its battery life. when people stand close to a vehicle, it will shine brightly and emit sound tones in response to the person’s presence. as the combination of color, speed and sound vary by the second, every visitor will have one of a kind, unique experience.
