Japanese art collective, teamLab, use a mix of digital technology and physical 3D spaces to create an interactive experience like no other. Their fantastical exhibitions, which have taken place all over the world, offer a unique chance to get fully immersed in art.

The ambitious installations are particular favorites of Instagrammers and vloggers out to get a completely otherworldly shot.


After creating a buzz around their work, teamLab finally opened their own permanent museum in Odaiba, Tokyo, named "MORI Building DIGITAL ART MUSEUM: teamLab Borderless." The museum has been popular since it opened, with a stream of visitors looking for a digital art wonderland. But even if you’ve already been once before, teamLab have come up with a reason to make you want to visit again.

They’ve announced a spring-themed temporary makeover for some of the exhibits.

Interactive digital installatio, "Spirits of the Flowers" celebrates an April-blooming flower, the Chinese milkvetch.


One of their most photogenic exhibitions, "The Forest of Resonating Lamps," will take on the classic sakura pink in tribute to Japan’s most beloved spring phenomenon, cherry blossoms.

Other intallations have been transformed too, using a mix of spring colors and seasonal flora.

These special spring twists added to the existing exhibitions can only be experienced between March and May and start and finish on different days. The closing days of the museum itself are also somewhat irregular so be sure to check ahead of time on the official website.
