teamLab at Radcliffe: What a Loving and Beautiful World (Oct. 16–Nov. 14)
RADCLIFFE INSTITUTE NEW EXHIBITION
teamLab at Radcliffe: What a Loving and Beautiful World
October 16–November 14, 2015
Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Harvard University
Hours: Monday through Saturday, 12 PM–5 PM
The newly renovated Johnson-Kulukundis Family Gallery at the Radcliffe Institute will open with a multimedia exhibition by teamLab that immerses viewers in a sophisticated and dreamlike world that is digitally generated. Based in Japan, teamLab is a consortium of artists, engineers, and computer scientists specializing in unique ultra-technological installations, where contemporary art, design, engineering, and computer science meet.
This exhibition is only the second ever in the United States dedicated to teamLab.
In teamLab at Radcliffe: What a Loving and Beautiful World, Chinese and Japanese characters appear on the walls of the gallery. When the viewer’s hand touches a character, an image of the character’s meaning emerges and interacts with images generated from other characters. The result is a colorful, multisensory space that continuously evolves as the images influence one another. New visual worlds are constantly created, and never repeated, immersing each visitor in his or her own unique experience.
Installations by teamLab have garnered attention around the world and have been displayed at Art Basel Hong Kong, Expo Milano, the Singapore Biennale, as well as in art festivals, galleries, and exhibition spaces in Australia, Brazil, China, France, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Korea, Norway, Sweden, and Taiwan.
