SINGAPORE - For visitors to Future World, the new permanent exhibition at the ArtScience Museum, the urge to lose oneself in this immersive digital realm will prove irresistible.
The show, which opens on Saturday (March 12), features 15 digital art installations by the well-known Tokyo-based art collective teamLab.
Spread over 1,500 sq m, or a quarter of the museum's total gallery space, the exhibition includes rooms teeming with flora and fauna, projections of animated landscapes and a chamber filled with more than 170,000 LED lights that conjure the illusion of one being suspended in outer space, surrounded by celestial bodies and stars.
Many of the artworks are designed to be interactive so they will constantly evolve in response to the action of visitors.
The works in this permanent exhibition will also be enhanced and refreshed from time to time.
Correction: An earlier version of the article stated that Future World is the first permanent exhibition at the ArtScience Museum. This is wrong.
