teamLab: Digitized Fukuyama Castle is a fantastic exhibition created by light from the international art collective teamLab that will take place in Fukuyama. It coincides with the 400th anniversary of the Fukuyama castle. There will be interactive glowing ovoids that change color and release a tone when toppled over, spreading the same color and tone to the surrounding ovoids one after the other. There will also be projections, autonomous music, and a chance to see your art come to life.
teamLab is transforming well-loved buildings and spaces into works of art without physically altering them. This is part of their project “Digitized City“.
Tickets cost ¥1,500 for adults and ¥600 for elementary and junior high school children. Preschoolers enter for free. You can purchase tickets on the day from 5 p.m. or online here. Last entry is at 9 p.m. but the festival will be open till 9:30.
