Yesterday we visited the Art Science Museum for the Future World exhibition. It’s a permanent exhibition where only the light installations change over time.
The exhibition is divided up in four narratives – Nature, Town, Park and Space.
The exhibition begins with a trip through nature. The first installation was an artwork with crows, rendered in light, that fly around the space leaving trails of light in their path. The second installation was a depiction of digitally rendered waves in a 3D environment. We were able to sit down and enjoy the seascape.

This interactive artwork reacts to the visitor’s input and ultimately develops into a cityscape. By moving cars, trains, planes and boats the system of roads, rivers and railways evolve smoothly. And adapt to the continuous development of human being. It’s a very important issue to consider the increasing amount of traffic and transportation systems in a growing world.
PARK – LIGHT BALL ORCHESTRA
Visitors can work together by pushing and rolling the balls to create a continuous change in the composition, color and sound. There are infinite possibilities to interact with each other as in the real world.
Another installation was the Sketch Aquarium. This artwork allows the visitor to create their own drawings and watch them come to life in a digital rendered aquarium by scanning the drawing.
SPACE – CRYSTAL UNIVERSE
The Crystal Universe was my favorite artwork. It is created with teamLab’s Interactive 4-D Vision technology and more than 170,000 LED lights. The animated Universe gives the illusion of stars, planets and galaxies moving in space. You have the feeling that you are inside the centre of action.
