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.

Who Made This?

teamLab Kids is an interdisciplinary group of ultra-technologists whose collaborative practice seeks to navigate the confluence of art, technology, design and the natural world. The group was founded in 2015 as a response to the current educational culture of Japan, which teamLab Kids feels prioritizes homogenous development, rote memorization and questions with a single correct answer. teamLab Kids installations such as Sketch Aquarium initiate freedom of expression and encourage individuals to achieve creative results as part of a larger team.
