teamLab: Reversible Rotation
5 October 2019 - 2 November 2019
Tolarno Galleries, in association with Martin Browne Contemporary, is pleased to announce the Australian Premiere of teamLab: Reversible Rotation.
Presented in association with Melbourne International Arts Festival 2 - 20 October 2019.
From their frenetic hive of a base in Tokyo, this sprawling assembly of thinkers and dreamers create immersive works of breathtaking imagination-sculptures of light whose radiance seems to pass through your very body. Given how intensely teamLab works at the cutting edge of technology and futurism, it can be surprising to experience how grounded the collective's practice is in the natural world, and indeed how their goal is to transcend the boundaries between humans and nature, and between oneself and the world.
In this exhibition four screen works will take over Tolarno Galleries. Rivers and sunbeams, a human hand applying ink to paper, the natural passing of time-these are the subjects that propel forward these pioneers of tomorrow.

This is not a drill, people: famous Japanese art collective teamLab is part of this year's Melbourne Festival.
For the head-scratchers out there, teamLab is an interdisciplinary group of ultra technologists whose collaborative practice seeks to navigate the confluence of art, science, technology, design and the natural world. Various specialists such as artists, programmers, engineers, CG animators, mathematicians and architects form teamLab and together, create some pretty breathtaking installations.
teamLab is behind that wacky floating forest of fluorescent egg-shaped objects that detected human movement, that insane virtual water installation (where a mini whirlpool of virtual formed beneath your feet and interacted with others around you), and the one where virtual flowers bloomed in your freaking hand.
Long story short: this thing will be a once-in-a-lifetime must-see and it is hitting Melbourne in October. Presented in association with Tolarno Galleries as part of the Melbourne Festival, the Reversible Rotation exhibition will simulate the motion of hundreds of thousands of digital particles. Those particles will then be projected as cascades of shimmering luminescence, but to a viewer, the effect is that of floating in a wave made of light. TL;DR: it'll be like you're floating in a giant wave of digital light.
Reversible Rotation will run from Saturday, 5 October until Saturday, 2 November 2019 and it is completely free, so you've no excuse.
