Opening exhibition of the recently established Amos Rex museum is Massless by TeamLab, which uses computer science to express nature in terms of modern art. The Massless exhibition is open until 6th of January 2019. Multidisciplinary and pioneering Amos Rex was opened to public 30.8.2018.
”Through digitally rendered representations of natural phenomena- flowing water, crashing waves, crows chasing crows, a single ecosystem – viewers can ponder nature and engage with it in a compressed form.”Amos Rex
Digital technology, that lies in the heart of Massless, allows new ways in creating art. By using digital techniques, the artwork can be liberated from its physical weight, hence making it massless. TeamLab, the creator of Massless, was founded by Toshiyki Inoko in 2001, and is a collaboration of 500 members from various disciplines like arts, animation, mathematics, architecture, computer science and engineering.
The exhibition comprises five works representing natural phenomena, like flowing water and crashing waves. Visitors can interact with the artwork, and for example an animal drawn by a visitor can become alive inside the artwork, or the flowers bloom based on movements of the visitor inside the artwork.
Exhibition is open until 6.1. 2019 in Amos Rex museum.
