For one of its latest projects, teamLab presents its Digitized Fukuyama Castle exhibition at a historic fortress located in Fukuyama, Hiroshima. Initially built in 1622 at the beginning of the Edo period as the last large-scale castle of its time, Fukuyama Castle is designated as one of Japan’s National Treasures. The original castle was demolished due to air raids during the Second World War and was later reconstructed with distinct features including restored iron paneling which is said to be the only one of its kind in the country.
The upcoming project is part of teamLab’s Digitized City art series, in which the digital art collective explores how non-material tech can turn a city and its buildings into art without physically altering it. The castle grounds and castle of Fukuyama are transformed into an interactive art space that’s influenced by the wind, rain, and the actions of visitors.
Installations on-site include “Autonomous Resonating Life,” featuring Ovoid objects on the outer grounds whose colors and tones change when pushed by people or blown by the wind. Meanwhile, outer stone walls feature projections of animal-shaped flowers that bloom and die in a continuous cycle as well as projections of anonymous processions featuring diverse figures. A “Sketch Generals” installation allows guests to color in their favorite general and see them come to life in the park while “Solidified Sparks” covers a dark space in wriggling clusters of light.
teamLab: Digitized Fukuyama Castle will be on view from December 2 to January 29. A more in-depth look can be found here.
