Odaiba, an artificial island in Tokyo Bay, is one of the many former fortresses constructed at the end of the Edo Period to stop U.S. Commodore Matthew Perry’s Black Ships from invading Japan. Today, it has become a popular shopping district, attracting not only tourists from all over the world, but also locals curious about the most advanced entertainment technology. The drastic change over the past hundreds of years is something no one would have expected back in the Edo Period!

MORI Building DIGITAL ART MUSEUM: teamLab Borderless

teamLab is famous for its concept of “borderless art,” where visitors can become part of an art display and interact with it, all thanks to the magic of digital technology. One of teamLab’s most popular exhibitions is the “Forest of Resonating Lamps,” which is itself one of the five ‘worlds’ you can see at “teamLab Borderless” in Odaiba. As with the other displays, visitors are encouraged to enter the space and interact with the exhibition itself. If you stand close to a lamp, it begins to glow. The lamp sends out its color to the nearest two lamps, which send it to the next two nearest, and so on, creating a magical path around the room.

In preparation for the winter season, teamLab has made some changes to this artwork, adding winter colorations, including one that makes the color of the lamps blue and resonate with white and pale blue light. This coloration has been dubbed “Ice Cave.” The Cool blue lighting makes for a wonderfully atmospheric setting, and the copious use of mirrors in the room makes the forest stretch out into infinity in all directions.

Although the venue is always worth a visit, the beauty found in the Venetian-glass lamps, which make up the new Ice Cave, is the perfect way to get into the winter mood! Why not come by and see for yourself?
