TeamLab - Planets, Tokyo

There is a second Team Lab experience that you should also do, which is not spread over as big an area as TeamLab Borderless, however this one involves water, so just wear runners and shorts, as the runners come off at the door and are placed into lockers for safe keeping.


Once again, it's all very orderly and well run, but get there early as people start queueing from around 9.30am - the earlier you get there, the less people there are walking through the exhibit.

TeamLab Planets consists of 4 vast exhibition spaces with 7 distinct artworks. The artworks are based on art collective teamLab’s concept of “Body Immersive”.







By immersing the entire body with other people in these massive “Body Immersive” artworks, the boundary between the body and the artwork dissolves, the boundaries between the self, others, and the world become something continuous, and we explore a new relationship without boundaries between ourselves and the world.


As I said, visitors enter the museum barefoot, and become completely immersed with other visitors in the vast artwork spaces. In one of the spaces we were knee deep in water and the amazing lighting showed fish swimming around amongst us - but alas, there were no real fish.
