Creative company teamLab is working on its latest project that includes transforming an iconic Japanese garden into an impressive work of art. They have recently shared some images that show what Kairakuen Garden in Mito, Ibaraki, will look like when they’re done with it.
Their goal is to show that art can coexist with the world without being invasive. The garden is well-known for its 3,000 plum trees and its breathtaking aesthetic.
Kairakuen Garden is considered one of the three greatest gardens in Japan, along with Kenrokuen Garden in Kanazawa and Korakuen Garden in Okayama. They all feature a pond as the central element and paths around it that the visitors use for walking.
“The form and shapes of nature have been created over many years and have been molded by the interactions between people and nature. We can perceive this long duration of time in these shapes of nature themselves,” the creative team tells My Modern Met.
The installation will be set from February 13th to March 21st, 2021.
