Worlds Unbound

The Art of teamLab

The first scholarly monograph to explore the work of the popular international art collective known as teamLab. 

Worlds Unbound introduces and contextualizes the artistic output of the Tokyo-based digital art collective teamLab, known for its electrifying installations that transcend boundaries between gallery, public space, and popular entertainment. In the twenty years since its founding in 2001, teamLab has grown into a global multidisciplinary collaboration with more than six hundred participants, including engineers, computer graphics animators, mathematicians, graphic designers, architects, artists, and computer programmers. With lavish illustrations throughout, this book provides a comprehensive overview of teamLab’s artistic vision and achievements, illuminating the remarkable scope of the group’s groundbreaking art and its fundamental contributions to the pivotal field of new media art.

Unpacking teamLab’s digital environments, from framed works animated on a loop to immersive environments that unfold in real time and respond to viewer behavior, Worlds Unbound illustrates how the collective uses the concept of interdependency to interrelate the natural world, participatory culture, and the digital art experience.
