An exhibition in QUAD Gallery by Japanese digital art collective teamLab who produce large-scale immersive installations to create stunning visual art experiences. What a Loving, and Beautiful World is an interactive experience inspired by nature - such as the sun, moon, water, trees and birds.


The Japanese interdisciplinary creative collective teamLab are ‘Ultra-technologists' who produce large-scale immersive installations that utilise the latest computer modelling techniques to create stunning interactive visual art experiences. 

What a Loving, and Beautiful World (2011), is a 3-screen installation of projected computer generated artworks which will immerse audiences in a stunning interactive art experience in QUAD Gallery.  The installation features twenty-two Sino-Japanese characters by the calligrapher Shishū which cascade down from ceiling to floor. The artwork is activated either by touch or by shadows which transform the images into new motifs associated with the meanings of the characters—mostly inspired by nature such as the sun, moon, water, trees and birds. As these images and the viewers interact with one another, more forms emerge that transform into and ever-evolving installation landscape. Sound is also triggered and transformed by audience interaction which ultimately generates a rich multi-sensory experience that is dependent upon the actions of visitors in the gallery and never repeats itself. 

teamLab are at the forefront of innovative contemporary digital art worldwide, they are a unique collaboration that consists of over 400 members - including visual artists, computer scientists, mathematicians, CG animators, web designers, roboticists, educators, architects, and engineers of all kinds. Their aim is to achieve a balance between art, science, technology and creativity. They are known for their abundant use of natural motifs, vivid colours, participatory and socially engaged ideas alongside references to traditional Japanese culture. In many of their works the boundaries between the artwork and the viewer are blurred, which leads to audiences becoming part of the artwork itself.
