teamLab Borderless is a world of artworks without boundaries, a museum without a map created by art collective teamLab. Artworks move out of rooms, communicate with other works, influence, and sometimes intermingle with each other with no boundaries, forming one borderless world. As people immerse their body in this borderless art, they ‘wander, explore, and discover’.

People understand and recognize the world through their bodies, moving freely and forming connections and relationships with others. The body has its own sense of time, and in the mind, boundaries between different thoughts are ambiguous, causing them to influence and at times intermingle with each other. The artworks, too, move out of the rooms freely, form connections and relationships with people, and possess the same concept of time as the human body.

teamLab Athletics Forest is a creative athletic space based on the concept of understanding the world through the body and thinking about the world three-dimensionally. It trains spatial recognition and promotes the growth of the hippocampus of the brain. People immerse their entire body in the complex and physically challenging three-dimensional space of the interactive world.
