Description

Label: Teamlab is an "ultra-technologists group" made up of programmers, mathematicians, architects, animators, web designers, graphic  designers, artists, editors, and more. Based in Japan, the group creates works through a collaborative process of "experimentation and innovation,"  blurring boundaries  between art, science, and technology. In teamlab's works, traditional calligraphic  forms fuse with anime aesthetics to present a digital world  of natural and supernatural imagery. The artists say that their work has been influenced by
the representation  of space in traditional  Japanese art, in which figures and objects share a single, flattened spatial plane.
