teamLab returns yet again with another immersive art installation at Kyoto’s UNESCO World Heritage Site, Shimogamo Shrine. The “Digitized Forest” exhibition highlights non-material digital technology that turns nature into art without harming it.
This year’s interactive Walk, Walk, Walk installation at the site’s Tadasu Forest generates a group of anonymous and diverse figures on the spot that walk along the Izumigawa River as it flows through Tadasu Forest. People can stay with these figures or leave them, and watch as they continue. Previous works like the Floating, Resonating Spheres will be placed within the Tower Gate of Shimogamo Shrine and the Resonating Forest and Autonomous Resonating Life installations will echo the vibrant color and tone spread throughout the spheres of light from the garden.
The exhibit will be held from August 17 until September 2, 2019. Tickets are available for purchase on Lawson Ticket’s website or at the door during the exhibition period for ¥1,300 JPY (approximately $12 USD) on weekdays, and ¥1,500 JPY (approximately $14 USD) on weekends.
