Ikkan Art Gallery is pleased to present its second solo exhibition of the Japanese collective, teamLab. 'teamLab: Flutter of Butterflies Beyond Borders – New Digital Works' sees the premiere of 3 pieces by the dynamic group.

'Flutter of Butterflies Beyond Borders, Ephemeral Life + The Void', an interactive digital installation spanning an entire gallery, melds two recent works by teamLab into one contingent being. Upon entering the gallery, the viewer is cocooned by an immersive landscape of wall and floor projections. Created in real time by a computer program with the presence of each viewer registering a different response from it, the entire work changes continuously; previous visual states can never be replicated, and will never reoccur.

In the next gallery where 'Dark Waves' resides and beside the single-channel version of 'Black Waves', teamLab continues their sustained exploration of and expounding on their concept of “Ultrasubjective Space”, a term that refers to the delineation of space in pre-modern Japanese painting. The multi-channel digital work depicts the movement of waves in water, simulated in computer-generated three-dimensional space.
