Homogenizing And Transforming World: TeamLab Poetic, Immersive And Interactive Installation

TeamLab is a collective, interdisciplinary creative group that brings together professionals from various fields of practice in the digital society: artists, programmers, engineers, CG animators, mathematicians, architects, web and print graphic designers and editors. Referring to themselves as ‘Ultra-technologists’, their aim is to achieve a balance between art, science, technology and creativity.
Their latest installation, a metaphor for the propagation of information in the age of modern Internet and social networks, is currently installed at the National Gallery of Singapore as part of the Gallery Children’s Biennale.
‘Individual balls floating in the air communicate with one another via a wireless connection. The balls change color when touched by viewers, or when they bump into things. Sounds are produced in relation to the colors. The balls send this color information to other balls, which in turn send the information to nearby balls, and the information spreads out so that all the balls become unified in color.
The Internet has spread throughout the world. Individuals are connected and information spreads back and forth freely. People act as intermediaries for information, and the instant the information spreads, the world unites. All individuals can freely and simply transmit information; the individual acts as an intermediary that transmits the information to the world, transforming it in an instant’.
