Built over a period of seven years from 1601, Fukuoka Castle is the largest castle in Kyushu. Often referred to as the Stone Castle, its center the Honmaru, Ninomaru and Sannomaru palaces were made up entirely of stone walls. The beautiful four layers of stone walls make this vast site a magnificent national historic treasure.
In teamLab: Light Festival in Fukuoka Castle Ruins exhibition, the heart of Fukuoka Castle ruins with its beautiful stone walls that span 20,000 square meters will be transformed into a digital art space of interactive light that changes according to the presence of people.
This exhibition is a part of teamLab’s art project called “Digitized Nature, Digitized City”. The concept of the project is that non-material digital art can turn nature and city into art without harming them.
