Teamlab at Pace Gallery

One of the best immersive installations I have been to is featured at the Pace Gallery at 6 Burlington Gardens. Tickets for the Teamlab experience have completely sold out but if you head to their website you may just be able to snag a ticket if there are cancellations or put your name down on the waiting list, trust me, it will be worth your while!

Transcending Boundaries

Teamlab’s | Transcending Boundaries installation reveals their commitment to the advancement of digital art, as well as the unique ability to nurture creativity and curiosity through technology and broadens our perspective to include the digitisation of art.
The largest and most exciting room in my opinion in the exhibition features a virtual waterfall that extends beyond the gallery wall onto the floor, flowing through the exhibition space and around your feet!. Everything is interactive! Flowers bloomed with every step I took! If that doesn’t excite you I don’t know what will!
I spent a good hour stroking the floor as if it were my Persian cat and watching the digital water dance around my fingertips and flowers disperse and float around me with every touch. I got so carried away chasing petals that I was nicely asked to refrain from touching the screens. Yes, everything is interactive apart from the screens *grin*, whoops.
It engages with the concept of Ultra Subjective Space, situating the viewer directly within the realm of the artwork, including YOU as part of the installation! You are encouraged to play, explore and interact. Through connecting with the works you are in turn also creating. Just see how I seem to blend right in in the image below….

The Cycle of Birth

This artwork is in continuous change, over a period of an hour, a seasonal year of flowers
blossoms and scatters.
Flowers are born,  watch them grow, bloom, and eventually scatter and even die.The cycle of birth and death repeats itself in perpetuity. It’s a play on the transient nature of life and the effect we have on the environment. You may think at first instance, oh this must be a video on a continuous loop but no siree, it is the interaction of the viewer that prompts the change so no experience is identical. Each and every viewer is an artist experiencing something unique only to them.

Flutterbug

Butterflies are born from where you stand and flutter seamlessly between installations and seem to merge and overlap eliminating all boundaries between works. See how they hover towards my outstretched hand…simply mesmerising don’t you think?

If you aren’t able to catch the exhibition here is a short clip

Dark Waves

Walking into the second room there was a stark contrast from the vibrant floral display, running water and butterfly playground of the previous room. This room was pitch black with only the waves on the wall to calm your mind. It was such an abrupt, yet strangely soothing and therapeutic experience, as I fell deeper into a trance of tracing each wave with my gaze as it rose and fell. You can see it for yourself below.

Blooming White

Through a blinding burst of light from the air well above and into another blackened space where you can opt for a white shawl and stand with other draped visitors as you wait in anticipation as to what will happen. I shan’t give too much away but let’s just say the general theme of the beauty of nature continues.

A big thank you to the team at the Pace Gallery for having me!

      Hi Terry, Thanks so much for your kind words about my post! My ring is actually the Quatre Ring from Boucheron. I will be doing a full outfit post later this week and will let you know what other available options there are for the ring that are similar in the post, so it would be lovely if you can check back then. Thanks so much for getting in touch!.
