Trip to Cameron Art Museum to view teamLab digital art installation: A Time When Art is Everywhere, and student work from ART/CSC/FST 320 animation class

Thursday, November 15th from 4 – 6:30 p.m.
Cameron Art Museum


TeamLab at the Cameron Art MuseumAbout the Event 

You have been chosen as an studio art of digital arts student to participate in special event featuring the unveiling of Gene Felice's animation class project using Japanese prints featured in Cameron Art Museum's galleries. In addition, you will receive free admission to three digital art installations by the international art collaborative teamLab. This is the first time this work has been exhibited in North Carolina.

teamLab is a dynamic collaborative of over 500 artists, programmers, engineers, CG animators, mathematicians and architects. They aim to explore new relationships between humans and nature, and between oneself and the world through art. Digital technologies have allowed us to liberate art from the physical and transcend boundaries. We do not see any separation between humans and nature and between oneself and the world: the two form a whole. Everything takes place in the long, fragile yet miraculous, borderless continuity of life. At the frontiers of art, science and technology, each of the three installations in A Time When Art is Everywhere is a journey in itself: playful, poetic and hypnotic, transporting the visitor to an enchanted and colorful world.
