an immersive aquarium art piece

Sketch Aquarium uses the best in 21st century technology to create a beautiful, engaging art and science experience for all ages.

Design a fanciful sea creature, and then watch it come to life and swim with all the other sea creatures in a wall-sized, moving aquarium projection.

Children can observe the power of their creative imagination through Sketch Aquarium. Paper and art making materials offer opportunities to design and color a sea creature. Once completed, the piece of paper is scanned, and the image is projected onto a giant virtual aquarium. Children may also touch the fish to see them swim away, or touch the virtual food bag to feed the fish.

Sketch Aquarium will launch late March 2017.

Who Made This?

teamLab (f.  2001,  Tokyo,  by  Toshiyuki  Inoko)  is  an  interdisciplinary  group  of  ultra-technologists whose  collaborative  practice  seeks  to  navigate  the  confluence  of  art,  technology,  design  and  the  natural world. Rooted in the tradition of ancient Japanese Art and contemporary forms of anime, teamLab operates from a distinctly Japanese sense of spatial recognition, investigating human behavior in the information era and proposing innovative models for societal development.
