A 12-foot video projection of a waterfall by the Japanese interdisciplinary technology group, teamLab, will be on display at the Dayton Art Institute as part of the summer suite of exhibitions. Informed by the tradition of ancient Japanese Art, ukiyo-e woodblock prints, and contemporary forms of anime, the work demonstrates teamLab’s keen interest in the transcendental qualities of water and the combination of both two and three-dimensional space in digital form. This exhibition is supported by JFNY Grant for Arts and Culture.
