Traditional artworks do not change in relation to the presence of viewers or their behavior. Digital art, however, has the ability to change due to the presence or behavior of viewers. Thus, the boundaries between artwork and viewers to become blurred and the viewers become part of the artwork itself. Furthermore, digital art has the ability to change the relationships among people who are present within the same space. If the interaction of other people with an artwork creates change that we feel is beautiful, then the presence of others can in itself become a positive element.
Takeshi Yamada of teamLab will show what kind of technologies and methods the Japan based global art collective applies in order to artistically explore new relationships between people as well as between humans and nature. The interdisciplinary group of ultra-technologists believes strongly that the digital domain expands the capacities of art and that digital art allows our bodies to become more immersed in the artwork than ever before. In addition, Takeshi Yamada will explain the workflow of several teamLab projects and the structure of the international known art collective.
Takeshi Yamada has been working for teamLab's management team in Tokyo, Japan,since 2017. Before joining teamLab, he worked as a marketeer for a tourist industry at Zurich.
