teamLab: Digitized Kochi Castle opens Friday, November 8th. Kochi Castle, one of Japan’s three best castles as seen at night, will be transformed into an interactive digital art space.

teamLab: Digitized Kochi Castle 2019-2020 returns to Kochi this year! Following last year’s success, teamLab will transform Kochi Castle, one of Japan’s three best castles as seen at night, into an interactive digital art space. The exhibition will be open from November 8th, 2019 (Friday) to January 13th, 2020 (Monday, public holiday).
 
Kochi Castle was built over a period of about 10 years starting in 1601. Despite it being destroyed in a  fire, it was rebuilt in the middle of the Edo period and restored to its original form. Kochi Castle is considered an important historical site in Japan, as it is the only castle where the castle tower and nearly all of the central structure remain intact.

This exhibition is a part of teamLab’s Digitized City art project. The concept behind the project is that non-material digital technology can turn a city into art without physically altering it.

Kochi Castle has stood from the Edo period to the present day and remains an important symbol for the city of Kochi. teamLab: Digitized Kochi Castle will transform the castle into an interactive digital art space that changes due to the presence of people. This in turn, enhances the presence of humans, and transforms the relationship between people in the same space with digital art.
