Tokyo-based immersive art collective teamLab will soon opening a new exhibition in partnership with the Melbourne International Arts Festival and Martin Browne Contemporary in Sydney. Known for work that pushes the boundaries of technology while remaining grounded in nature, teamLab’s “Reversible Rotation” upholds and even expounds upon that mindset.

“Reversible Rotation” will feature four computer-generated simulations at Tolarno Galleries, each representing a calming movement that aims to remove any barrier between the viewer and the piece through capturing the slow passage of time. These simulations are all named in line with their themes: Waves of Light is a sprawling screen that captures the methodical motion of waves crashing, yielding a peaceful feeling. Enso – Cold Light references the Zen practice of drawing a circle with a single brush stroke, representing enlightenment, the universe and other expansive conceits.

Completing the set are two variations on teamLab’s core Reversible Rotation piece, one in black in white and the other in cold light. Both will depict the act of writing Japanese sho (calligraphy), while rotating the forms in three dimensional space, offering a contemporary interpretation of the traditional ink letterforms.

“teamLab: Reversible Rotation” will be open to the public free of charge from October 5 until November 2 at Tolarno Galleries. Learn more over on the Melbourne International Arts Festival’s website, and view the works in action via Tolarno Galleries’ recent Instagram Live video.

Most recently, teamLabs took over an abandoned bath house with Megaliths.
