The world's first digital art museum has opened its doors in Japan recently. The Tokyo-based museum offers visitors an interactive art experience that defies borders, according to a press release issued by its co-founders: the art collective teamLab and the urban developer group Mori Building.
"As people walk freely around teamLab Borderless they lose themselves in the artwork world," the statement said. "The borderless artworks transform according to the presence of people, and as we immerse and meld ourselves into this unified world, we explore a new relationship that transcends the boundaries between people, and between people and the world."
Basically, the installations are created so that you can walk through a painting - fully immersed in artistic creations that cover the walls, floors and ceilings.
They added that the museum is the "first and only museum of its kind."
Now all they need to do to perfect the visitor experience is work on its name. Right now, it's known as the 'MORI Building DIGITAL ART MUSEUM: teamLab Borderless,' which doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. But the installations will still leave you speechless. Check out the video tour below.
