Reblog via artlog: "teamLab in NYC"
If you are interested in the intersection of art and technology, then make Pace Gallery in Chelsea your first stop for the first ever US exhibition of the Japanese collective teamLab. Do not let collective deceive you. This group led by Toshiyuki Inoko is made up of over 300 “ultra-technologists;” a company, agency, and innovation lab all in one, teamLab works on dozens of projects at a time that include animation, sound, internet, interactive and immersive installations. At the exhibition’s opening, Inoko declared, “I just like the digital better than the phsyical.”
The works in the installation are undeniably Japanese, with influences from classical Japanese art, Japanese gardens, the Edo period, and Ukiyo-e woodblock prints, all the way to modern day anime. At the same time, as you lose yourself spinning through their 3D worlds or flying through the universe with the crows, you can’t help but feel like you are looking at the future of art.
Get a further glimpse of teamLab’s work on their Youtube page.
teamLab’s exhibition Ultra Subjective Space is open until August 15, 2004 at Pace Gallery’s 508 & 510 West 25th Street locations.

Museum Monday: This summer, the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, New York, has mounted an exhibition of sculptures and installations by Maya Lin, entitled Platform: Maya Lin. Using technological methods to study and visualize the natural world, Lin takes macro and micro views of the Earth - via sonar resonance scans and aerial and satellite mapping devices - and translates that information into expressive sculptures, drawings, and sited installations. On view will be nine works ranging in media from marble to recycled silver, including three never before exhibited works: Accabonac Harbor, Georgica Pond, and Mecox Bay.

We love these Instagram posts of Lee Ufan’s sculptures at the Château de Versailles. The 10 installations will be on view at the palace through November 2, 2014.
Reblog via instagram: "Exploring the Contemporary Contrasts of Lee Ufan’s Work at Versailles"
Last week, South Korean artist Lee Ufan unveiled a series of 10 commissioned works on the grounds of the Chateau de Versailles outside of Paris, France.
Ufan’s pieces take shape as large-scale sculptures and installations. Simple structures such as immersive rock gardens and the exhibition’s iconic polished-concrete arch stand in stark contrast to the decadent landscape of the Chateau grounds. The striking differences between the historical grounds and the exhibition works lead visitors to discover the dialogue and harmonies that can exist between objects that—at first—seem wholly dissimilar.
Ufan’s works will be on view at Chateau de Versailles until early November 2014.
