Renowned digital and experiential art collective teamLab recently announced its plans to take over Japan’s historic Kairakuen Garden as part of a large-scale outdoor art project. The garden and its 3,000 plum blossom trees will be transformed into an interactive art space that responds to the presence of visitors.

With this project, teamLab continues its exploration of how nature can become art. “The concept of the project is that non-material digital technology can turn nature into art without harming it,” said the collective in a statement. “The forms and shapes of nature have been created over many years and have been molded by the interactions between people and nature. We can perceive this long duration of time in these shapes of nature themselves. By using the shapes, we believe we can explore the boundary in our perception of the long continuity of time.”

“teamLab: Digitized Kairakuen Garden” will run from February 13 to March 21, 2021, in Mito, Ibaraki. Visit teamLab’s website to learn more about the outdoor installations.

Elsewhere in art, Dallas Contemporary has released limited edition prints by Yoshitomo Nara to celebrate the Japanese artist’s upcoming survey.
