Kyoto’s Shimogamo Shrine will once again radiate under the immersive artworks of teamLab as the Japanese collective prepares to open its “Digitized Forest” exhibition. Following behind two previous installations at the World Heritage Site, the upcoming edition continues to capture teamLab’s emphasis on nature and human interaction through the use of digital technologies.

The artists combined a series of sensors, lights, and sounds throughout the installation, taking care to ensure that none of the materials were harmful to the environment. In the site’s Tadasu Forest, visitors can interact with the new Walk, Walk, Walk exhibition, which will create diverse figures in real-time by using a computer program that senses people’s movements. Other highlights revisit some of the group’s previous works, such as the Floating, Resonating Spheres set-up and the Resonating Forest and Autonomous Resonating Life installations, which both feature a vibrant display of color-changing objects.

“Digitized Forest” will be on view at Shimogamo Shrine from August 17 until September 2, 2019. Scroll below to see a preview of the works in the video below and to purchase tickets, visit Lawson Ticket’s website.

Recently, teamLab made a return to Mifuneyama Rakuen Park, implementing another of its immersive large-scale exhibitions.
