This one’s for your Instagram feed: teamLab Future Park, an interactive digital art installation from Tokyo, is opening in Jakarta today. To give you an idea of the incandescent light shows that will be on offer, take a look at the original exhibition in Japan:
If you’ve got an acute case of FOMO, teamLab Future Park is open starting today and will remain open until December 20 at Gandaria City mall. Just like in Tokyo, the exhibition combines technology and art to give a sense of what form art could take in the future.
Located on the second floor of Gandaria City in a 2,000 square meter area, the exhibition will feature five interactive installation artworks.
In the first installation, Animals of Flowers, Symbiotic Lives, visitors can stroke various digital renderings of animals on the screen, causing flowers to grow on their bodies. In what might be the exhibition with the largest room, Grafitti Nature: Lost, Immersed and Reborn, you can see living creatures being eaten by other living creatures, creating a sustainable ecosystem.

Did you know that work of today will disappear? Artificial intelligence and machinery could replace much of the existing work that we know of today. In a future society, traits that only human possess – such as creativity – will become increasingly important. Get ready to boost your creativity at #futureparkjakarta! #cocreation #collaborative #creation #creativity #createeveryday #teamlab #inspiration #gandariacity #jakarta #explorejakarta #artexhibition
In the next interactive exhibition, Sliding through the Fruit Field, visitors can play on a large slide just like the name suggests. In Sketch Aquarium, visitors can draw sea creatures using their own imaginations, and their creations will be shown in a large digital aquarium. In what is probably the most Instagram-friendly installation, Light Ball Orchestra, visitors are encouraged to roll luminescent balls and see their colors and sounds change when touched.

"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." ~ Pablo Picasso Do you remember when you were a kid, and you thought everything was possible? Often, that creativity and inspiration gets lost in the world of adulthood. In the world of deadlines and financial constraints, these zaps of creativity get evaporated. In today’s world, creativity seems to be constantly fleeting. Well, science says that childhood attitudes are onto something more than temper tantrums. New studies are emerging that show that acting like a child can bring massive success — even if you’re not a “creative type.” Are you ready to unleash your inner child at @futureparkjakarta? #futureparkjakarta #kids #adults #playground #innerchild #play #learn #artexhibition #artexperiments #jakarta #explorejakarta
