Relationships Among People
Time: Wednesday, October 30, 5:00 pm
Location: STUDIO for Creative Inquiry

Daisuke Sakai, a co-founder of Japanese art and design firm teamLab, will speak about “Relationships Among People”, one of the concepts guiding teamLab’s projects. Exploring how digital artwork can influence the changing nature of human relationships, teamLab makes the presence of others a key ingredient of their interactive installations. Also central to teamLab’s work is to explore new relationships between humans and nature, and between oneself and the world, through art. In this practice-oriented lecture, Sakai will introduce this concept and illustrate it with teamLab’s artworks including Borderless and A Forest Where Gods Live.
