So first let me start this one with saying: “Everyone should see this and this should definatly come to the Netherlands!”
This exhibition is so, so cool. Sadly enough it has just ended but I was one of the thousands and thousands and don’t let me stop yet, THOUSANDS of lucky ones to see it. No seriously I waited 5 hours to get inside and although after almost 3 hours and a sudden rain fall I wanted to get out but I kept on pushing myself. One thing that helped were the nice people standing with me for 5 hours. The three ladies in front of me handed me their umbrella while the rain came falling down. Twice. And the family behind me wanted to share there fries with me but I asked if it’s okay to get out of the line to get my own.
Japanese people are the best people at waiting in line. I think it’s an art at what they do. I have seen them waiting in lines in Disney and they just keep going at it! After 5 hours they were still smiling and I was at my end. But then when I walked it I was all smiles.
Like they explain on the website, it is made for all ages and it invited you into all these different rooms like a big maze.
teamLab, an art collective, will present DMM.PLANETS Art by teamLab at Odaiba, Tokyo.
This will be the inaugural exhibition of newly announced initiative and will showcase some of the largest scale artworks by teamLab. An exciting digital maze of artworks including a massive “Wander through the Crystal Universe”(around 20 m x 20 m x 4 m) will be on show.
The huge installation will invite participants of all ages to immerse themselves in the multi-room environments spanning around 3,000sqm and showcasing multiple digital works. Participants will be invited to explore inside interactive artworks —including the largest Crystal Universe ever shown.
And it’s all pretty dark so you have to be pretty good at walking around in the dark. I didn’t film it because I was falling over the whole time but you start of with this bed like room with those little foamy balls beneath sheets, where you have to try and not fall or fall asleep. From there on you move into this bright crystal room what they call the Crystal Universe where there are lights EVERYWHERE. With the sounds/music in the background you kinda lose track of time but because it was kind off busy you sort of get directed to the exit. From that room you move onto the one filled with water and pull up your pants because it gets high! Like babies could swim kind of high.
With the white water and the projections it seems like your walking into this big pond of koi and flowers and it may sound weird but you will have to see it in my vlog! Because reading is boring anyways! In the last room you get to sit on this huge mirror while above your head flowers fall down in all kinds of sizes and colors. Now in between this all you are being guided, cleaned and lost in your own thoughts. But one thought just went through my mind “Why didn’t I bring my camera?!” Yeah I was kind of scared that something would happen to it and in the beginning you get this cute holder for your phone so it keeps dry so that is how I made this vlog!
Oh and if you want like HD quality watch this little info from teamLab themselves!
