Spaday needed? teamLab makes us sweat in a sauna
The collective is working on a digital bathhouse experience
Art x Tech 27 Jan 2021

It’s no secret to say that teamLab is huge in Japan – not only are the two local museums essential sightseeing musts on any trip to Tokyo, but also the art collective keeps working on innovative pop ups and temporary installations, just think of their magical garden.

However, their newest gig, teamLab Reconnect, brings light art and digital projection to a whole new, and sweaty, level. Located in Tokyo’s Roppongi hood, teamLab Reconnect combines a traditional sauna experience with the group’s signature art.

The exhibition will consist of three special themed areas designed to play with our senses: the traditional sauna, a cold water bath and the art bath. The surrounding artworks, all based around the theme of supernatural visions, will invite you to reconnect with your body and mind by experiencing these various surroundings.

So far, two pieces of art have been announced. The James Turrell-like ‘Levitation’ (pictured above) uses teamLab’s classic technique of art that responds to the viewer’s physical presence. When approached or touched, the glowing ball will fall and move around, but when left alone, it will rise back into its original position.

teamLab Reconnect will open from March to August 2021. More information on tickets, opening hours and Covid-19 prevention measures will be announced later, so keep an eye on the official website.
