Learn & Play! teamLab Future Park - Powerhouse Museum - Info - Sydney

Learn & Play! teamLab Future Park is the latest exhibition by Japanese art collective teamLab. Featuring eight interactive light installations never seen in Australia. Future Park is now at the Powerhouse Museum!

As the first teamLab interactives to come to Australia, Future Park is a playground for children and adults alike that brings together science and imagination to create collaborative artworks that change and evolve each day. Visitors will be swept into jungles of dreamt-up forests, compose symphonies, build cities and invent animals and people of the future.

Future Park features 8 installations that evolve in real time as they respond to human interactions with the art.

Visitors will have the opportunity to make music with Light Ball Orchestra as balls small and large, suspended and rolling connect with each other to create a live composition. This ever-changing symphony is combined with a light show as the balls change colour as they interact.
