CANCELLED: LAEP Lecture Series: Daisuke Sakai
This lecture is sponsored by Center for Japanese Studies (CJS), and the Dept. of Landscape Architecture & Environmental Planning.
Daisuke Sakai, a co-founder of teamLab, speaks about the theme of 'Relationships Among People', one of teamLab’s concepts which aims to explore a new relationship among people, and to make the presence of others a positive experience through digital art. Sakai will introduce such concept along with teamLab’s works.
teamLab was founded in 2001 as an interdisciplinary art collective whose expansive practice involves collaborations in the fields of art, technology and science, exploring the new relationships between people, and between people and the world in the information age. Artists, programmers, engineers, CG animators, mathematicians, architects, web and print graphic designers and editors form teamLab. Using technology to dissolve the boundaries between the physical and conceptual, and to propose new models of perception in the digital era, their work is immersive and interactive—focused on the themes of creativity, play, exploration, immersion, life, and fluidity.
