The Tokyo-based international art collective, teamLab, is launching a solo exhibition at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco. 

The interdisciplinary group is renowned for interactive digital artwork and the use of technology to allow viewers into the artwork. One of their largest installments to date, teamLab: Continuity combines nature, technology and digital art to create an all-around immersive experience.

Viewers will find themselves in a lush world of blooming flowers, darting crows, schools of fish and fluttering butterflies. Designed to be viewed from specific perspectives that blend the boundaries of the space, these pieces are made for the individual viewer to be able to shape their own experience of the exhibit. By simply reaching out their hand, guests can change the colors of works and affect the subjects of the pieces.

With 16 works inspired by nature and East Asian art, this will be the first exhibition in the museum’s new Akiko Yamazaki and Jerry Yang Pavilion. The multisensory dreamscape will be showcased within the 15,000 square feet of the pavilion - a giant space to house the giant imaginary world of teamLab: Continuity.

Get a peek into the exhibition, which opens at the Asian Art Museum on July 23, here:
