Art collective teamLab have launched their second digital-only museum, described as "a world made of artworks without boundaries."

Located in Huangpu District, Shanghai, teamLab Borderless Shanghai​ follows the launch of MORI Building Digital Art Museum: teamLab Borderless in Tokyo last year.

Designed by teamLab Architects, the 6,600sq m (71,000sq ft) destination is said to be an intricately-structured three-dimensional space housing around 50 artworks.

People understand and recognize the world through their bodies, moving freely and forming connections and relationships with others. As a consequence, the body has its own sense of time. In the mind, the boundaries between different thoughts are ambiguous, causing them to influence and sometimes intermingle with each other.

Visitors walk through the galleries experiencing digital artworks that move out of the rooms around them, form connections with and react to them and transcend the physical space of the museum, moving between other teamLab Borderless museums around the world.

Among the artworks on display are a vast forest of lamps that light up with the proximity of visitors and digital light sculptures comprising more than 1,000 densely packed moving lights.

Immerse your body in this borderless art. Wander, explore with intention, discover, and create a new world with others.
