A mind trippin' experience at the TeamLabs/Borderless Art Exhibit in Tokyo

Going to Tokyo? The TeamLabs/Borderless Art Exhibit in Tokyo is a 10,000 square foot mind tripping experience. Make sure you book early because tickets sell out fast.

I’ve been kicking myself for two months. Why? I missed my slot during the opening! You may be asking, “What is this teamLabs/Borderless collaboration?”

People understand and recognize the world through their bodies, moving freely and forming connections and relationships with others. As a consequence the body has its own sense of time. In the mind, the boundaries between different thoughts are ambiguous, causing them to influence and sometimes intermingle with each other. 

teamLab Borderless is a group of artworks that form one borderless world. Artworks move out of the rooms freely, form connections and relationships with people, communicate with other works, influence and sometimes intermingle with each other, and have the same concept of time as the human body. 

People lose themselves in the artwork world. The borderless works transform according to the presence of people, and as we immerse and meld ourselves into this unified world, we explore a continuity among people, as well as a new relationship that transcends the boundaries between people and the world.

Crudely described? It is a vast complex, three-dimensional 10,000 square meter space, 520 computers and 470 projectors mixed reality world where you and the art interact. You are the art.

Just watch the video and you will understand.

Get tickets early. Give yourself a minimum of two hours to experience it. Get there before it opens. It gets packed!
