temaLab Planets Tokyo, an interactive art gallery we have always wanted to visit once in our lifetime. This massive art museum has four different exhibition spaces and two gardens, including water and garden areas. You will be asked to walk barefoot through water; you are allowed to touch the work and immerse your body with everyone else in the artwork spaces. It's time to explore a new relationship and become one with the world today. Let's go!

Highlights of the Water Area
Expanding Three-Dimension Existence in Transforming Space is filled with free-floating colour-changing spheres all over the room. Visitors are allowed to move through or strike the spheres to have them changed into twelve different colours. The shape of the space, as well as the colours of the whole room, keep changing according to visitor's actions. Therefore, you are absolutely capable to "create" your own "environment" in this fun-filled art space.
The Infinite Crystal Universe, is a room filled with three-dimensional light objects and floor-to-ceiling mirrors. Visitors can select stars to throw into the universe by their smartphones; the location and the presence of people within the work will affect the light objects in the space. This artwork is constantly changing and evolving by how you "control" it. The space is overwhelmingly beautiful, just like an infinite universe without an ending point.
Now you may "draw" on the water surface by how you move and walk into the water. The movement of the Japanese koi is absolutely influenced by your movement. This artwork is rendered in real-time by a computer program and is continuously changing due to the interaction between the viewer and the installation work. Therefore, the visual states of this work can never be replicated. How cool it is!
Highlights of the Garden Area
This floating flower garden is full of stunning fresh blooming orchids that floats above people and allows us to freely wander within the open spaces. The scent of the artwork changes throughout the day as the orchids produce a strong fragrance during nights. While you are there, you can truly see them for the very first time and finally become one with the garden.
Moss Garden of Resonating Microcosms, an artwork in a semi-outdoor space that consists appearance-changing ovoids in a moss garden. The ovoids glows and shine by themselves at the time of sunset every day. Since, moss can survive long dry periods and come back to life when it's moisturised again; this artwork allows you to think about what it really means to be alive. In order to keep the work "alive" and "changing" from time to time, visitors can push the ovoids and let them swing freely.
