teamLab: Light Festival in Fukuoka Castle Ruins 2019 – 2020 [Maizuru Park / Fukuoka Castle Ruins]2019.11.29 〜 2020.02.02 Ohori/Ropponmatsu Area
The night-time Maizuru Park and Fukuoka Castle Ruins that span about 20,000 square meters will be transformed into a digital art space of light!
Built over a period of seven years from 1601, Fukuoka Castle is the largest castle in Kyushu. Often referred to as the Stone Castle, its center such as Honmaru, Ninomaru and Sannomaru palaces were made up entirely of stone walls. Beautiful four layers of stone walls make this vast site a magnificent national historic treasure.
“Digitized Nature, Digitized City” is a part of teamLab’s art project. The concept of the project is that non-material digital art can turn nature and city into arts without destroying nature or changing functions of the city.
In the teamLab: Light Festival in Fukuoka Castle Ruins exhibition, the heart of Fukuoka Castle ruins with beautiful stone walls that span 20,000 square meters will be transformed into a digital art space of interactive light that changes according to the presence of people.
In this exhibition, a total of 7 including new 4 works will be exhibited, such as the black three-legged crow, Yatagarasu flying around the stone walls of the ruins of Fukuoka Castle Tower portrayed by lights; Crows are Chased and the Chasing Crows are Destined to be Chased as well in the Stone Wall – Fukuoka Castle Tower Ruins and “Sketch Kuroda Kanbei”, drawings of the founders of Fukuoka Domain who laid the foundation of Fukuoka.
