TeamLab was founded in 2001 and includes artists, programmers, engineers, computer animators, mathematicians and architects that as a group term themselves “ultra-technologists”. Until now they have worked with digital art exhibitions around the world, and they are opening a digital museum in Tokyo. The vision is “We’ve wanted to create the exhibition that delivers the borderless artwork world, and figured we needed to establish the museum itself in order to make that happen,” according to a teamLab spokesperson. The plan is to update the museum’s installations annually. Below is one of teamLab’s installations from 2016 called Wander through the Crystal Universe. Source: World Economic Forum
