teamLab Borderless

Watch as interactive art projections come to life right before your eyes at the world’s first digital art museum.

Walk through bursting colors, sparkling crystals and flowers blooming from every direction at teamLab Borderless—a digital art exhibition that’s like nothing else you’ve ever experienced. The international art collective behind the exhibit began in 2001 and consists of artists, programmers, computer graphic animators and architects who want to understand and appreciate the world around them. With exhibits all across cities like New York, Abu Dhabi and Beijing, each offers an experience unlike any other.

The permanent exhibit currently housed at Azabudai Hills in Tokyo, is truly an experience. Immerse yourself in showers of light—trust us, it’s exactly as mind-bending as it sounds. The art morphs and transforms, encapsulating visitors and tantalizing their senses. The museum “without a map” is brimming with over 50 works that include stunning free-flowing interactive designs.

It’s exactly as mind-bending as it sounds, and that’s only the beginning—teamLab Borderless has much more in store.

Visiting the museum

One visit might take you to any icy blue fantasy, while the next may see the room glowing with different hues of green and purple. No two visits are ever the same. There is no correct way to explore the fluid designs being projected before you, but the Crystal World area is one of the most dazzling. With mirrors in every direction, reflecting a maze of shimmering crystals, the possibilities are endless. The mystical background music sets the tone perfectly for this fairytale of lights, colors, and sounds. Reach out and touch the characters marching along the museum walls to see how they interact with you, but be gentle with the fluttering butterflies—if you touch them, they’ll die. With countless artworks, a teahouse and even a kid-friendly area, you can (and will) spend hours here. The best way to enjoy your visit is distraction-free, letting the vivid images whisk you away into another dimension.
