Drawing on the Water Surface Created by the Dance of Koi and People - Infinity teamLab, 2016-2018, Interactive Digital Installation, Endless, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi (Photo: Business Wire)
The change to an autumnal space takes place in a massive interactive work entitled Drawing on the Water Surface Created by the Dance of Koi and People - Infinity, where visitors to the museum can walk barefoot through water. This work changes throughout the year, with flowers that bloom and change with the seasons in real time. During this three-month period only, the koi that swim across the endlessly expansive surface of the water will change into autumn leaves, chrysanthemums, and other autumn flowers as they collide with museum visitors.
Starting in October, by popular demand, a limited-edition menu will be available once more at Everything is in your hand, the museum’s food stand. The menu takes advantage of the freshest seafood and shellfish, sent directly from Toyosu Market.
• The Museum’s Concept: Body Immersive
teamLab Planets is a museum where you move through water. It consists of 4 vast exhibition spaces at its center, and 7 works of art. The artworks are based on art collective teamLab’s concept of “Body Immersive”.
The massive Body Immersive space consists of a collection of installations in which the entire body becomes immersed in the art, and the boundaries between the viewer and the work become ambiguous.
Visitors enter the museum barefoot, and become immersed with other visitors in the vast installation spaces.
• With more than 1.25 million visitors in the year since the museum opened, teamLab Planets has welcomed more visitors than both the Picasso Museum and the Dali Theatre-Museum.
In the one year since teamLab Planets opened in July of 2018, there have been more than 1.25 million visitors from 106 different countries and regions throughout the world. This number of visitors exceeds the count for two of the world’s top three single-artist museums, the Picasso Museum in Barcelona, with nearly 950,000 visitors, and the Dali Theatre-Museum in Figueres (also in Spain), with just over 1.1 million visitors. (See note 1.) Of those 1.25 million annual visitors, roughly 30 percent were from outside Japan. (See note 2.) An analysis of those visitors’ home countries found that the museum was most popular among Americans, followed by Hong Kong, Taiwan, the UK, and Australia, in that order.
