Ultra Subjective Space
& collect
The influence of western culture was not felt in Japan until after the late Edo period and the time of seclusion (late 19th Century). At teamLab we believe that up to this time it is possible that the Japanese people had a different way of seeing and understanding the world, and as a result had a different way of experiencing the world to that which we know today. Japanese traditional painting is often described as flat because it lacks western perspective. However, we propose that people in Japan at that time may have actually seen the world as they chose to depict it in Japanese painting. People of today have a perception of space that is based on the perspective they see in photos and paintings, but is it not possible that people of old saw and were able to feel space in the art work they looked at? Is it not possible that the “flatness” of Japanese art was based on a different logic and understanding of space than that of perspective? At teamLab we have decided to call that logical construction of space “Ultra Subjective Space”. If we consider that the “flatness” of Japanese art is the product of a different logic regarding the existence of space then it should be possible to reproduce that feeling of the space. To do this we began by creating a 3 dimensional world in a 3 dimensional computer space and then explored different ways of logically structuring the space so that it appears as it would in a Japanese painting. This resulted in the “Ultra subjective Space” series; a series of art works that are created in three-dimensions and then flattened in line with what we consider to be the logical construction of Japanese spatial awareness. teamLab是一个由各种创作型专业人才组成的超级技术团队。我们有程序员,工程师(前台工程师,数据库工程师,系统架构师,用户界面设计师, 网络工程师,硬件工程师, 图像处理工程师 ),数学家,建筑师,网页设计师,图像设计师,CG动画师,画家,编辑等等。teamLab is made up of specialists in the information society. We create works through “experimentation and innovation” making the borders between Technology, Art, and Design more ambiguous.
