This Japanese firm’s inspiring 3D installation has taken Paris by storm

Ever touched a digital waterfall and interrupted in flow? If not, here’s your chance to do so at teamLab’s “Beyond the Limits” exhibition in Paris. A Japanese tech firm, teamLab’s is known for its visually stunning 3D installations and connoisseurs can sample some of its best works from May 4 to September 4 at La Villette, an expansive exhibition hub in Paris.

The exclusive event is scheduled right before Japonismes 2018, a cultural event marking the 160th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Japan and France. As part of the inviting 3D spread, one can experience, the “Universe of Water Particles on Au-dela des limites” – an enormous waterfall projected on a wall 11 meters high and 26.5 meters wide, which can be felt in a life-like manner by visitors. Amongst other gaze-worthy installations are the “A Whole Year per Hour / Flowers and People, cannot be Controlled but Live Together” which basically showcases flowers blooming, growing and eventually shedding their petals in a never-ending cycle.

Visitors can also lie down on many of the digital images and virtually feel them for a more, life-like experience. Per TeamLab leader Toshiyuki Inoko, “The exhibition will inspire people to rethink about boundaries in their daily lives and across the world.” And we second that thought in 3D!
