Japan holds technological fascinations that are perhaps years ahead of US day-to-day technology. That’s why it’s no wonder why the world’s first digital art museum (by digital art collective teamLab and Mori Building)  opened in Tokyo, opening up a world that projects fantasy onto an immersive setting. The environment reflects child-like imagination and wonders, and although this does attract many children, it also engorges adults with elicited feelings of nostalgia.

The exhibits also elicit feelings of awe and innocence due to the sheer beauty of the many colors that are on display. I thought that this is truly the most immersive work of art that I could ever encounter and that because the works requires and reacts to human interaction, that the art is truly an experience more than a medium. Perhaps it was the artists’ intentions to throw the audience’s visuals and to promote “thinking out of the box”.
