Digitized Forest at the World Heritage Site of Shimogamo Shrine, Kyoto Art by teamLab - TOKIO INKARAMI
World Heritage Tadasu no Mori Forest at Shimogamo Shrine Transforms into an Interactive Digital Art and Light Space
2019 sees the return of teamLab to Kyōto’s Shimogamo Shrine with the Digitized Nature art project, using digital technology to transform nature into art without having a physical impact on it.
This summer, the forest of Tadasu no Mori is to be turned into an art space with a number of digitial installations, including “Resonating Forest and Autonomous Resonating Life – Tadasu Forest at Shimogamo Shrine” and “Floating, Resonating Spheres – Shimogamo Shrine”. The path approaching Shimogamo Shrine and the tower gate become interactive light artworks that change in response to the presence of people. The banks of the small stream flowing through the shrine grounds will be brought to life with a digital parade of creatures in the installation, “Walk, Walk, Walk – Tadasu Forest at Shimogamo Shrine”.
