Art collective based in Tokyo. Formed in 2001. Toshiyuki Inoko, Founder (born in 1977 in Tokushima, Japan)
teamLab is an art collective, an interdisciplinary group of ultratechnologists whose collaborative practice seeks to navigate the confluence of art, science, technology, design and the natural world. Various specialists such as artists, programmers, engineers, CG animators, mathematicians and architects form teamLab.
The collective aims to explore a new relationship between humans and nature, and between oneself and the world through art. Digital technology has allowed art to liberate itself from the physical and transcend boundaries. teamLab sees no boundary between humans and nature, and between oneself and the world; one is in the other and the other in one. Everything exists in a long, fragile yet miraculous, borderless continuity of life.
teamLab’s works are in the permanent collection of the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide; Asian Art Museum, San Francisco; Asia Society Museum, New York; Borusan Contemporary Art Collection, Istanbul; National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; and Amos Rex Museum, Helsinki. teamLab opened its permanent museum Mori Building Digital Art Museum: teamLab Borderless in Tokyo in 2018.
teamLab is represented by Ikkan Art Gallery, Pace Gallery and Martin Browne Contemporary.
