The award-winning Japanese art collective, teamLab, is set to open a permanent exhibition in the Netherlands, giving their insanely popular light installations a new home in Utrecht.
Tokyo-based teamLab is renowned for its multi-sensory exhibitions that draw sold-out crowds all over the world, from Shanghai to Seoul to San Francisco. The shows are usually centred around light, sound, digital sequences and virtual-reality experiences. Giant glowing musical balls, waterfall projections and exploding flowers have all featured in teamLab pieces but perhaps the collective’s most famous work is Crystal Universe, an immersive light show that uses 50,000 LED lights to create 3D celestial patterns that visitors can walk through.
