teamLab: Sketch Aquarium

Temporarily Closed
Shriram Learning Center

Your drawing comes to life in Sketch Aquarium, an interactive digital experience by ultratechnologist art collective teamLab.

Preview teamLab’s interactive digital artistry before the major exhibition teamLab: Continuity opens in the new Akiko Yamazaki and Jerry Yang Pavilion in May. Stop by the Shriram Experiential Learning Center to participate in teamLab: Sketch Aquarium, where your drawing comes to life.

Color in your own sea creature, then watch as it joins with others swimming around the room’s walls. teamLab’s technology animates your drawing and adds it to teamLab: Sketch Aquarium, a collaborative artwork that builds over time. You can also interact with the fish as they swim around you and “feed” them by touching a virtual bag of fish food.

Art collective teamLab, founded in Tokyo in 2001, is a group of animators, architects, artists, engineers, mathematicians, and programmers who seek to navigate the confluence of art, science, technology, design, and the natural world.
