You might remember the playful room of projections, in which artists used light to simulate ocean currents. The Australian premiere of teamLab’s latest work will be at Tolarno Galleries [Level 4  104 Exhibition Street, Melbourne] as part of the Melbourne International Arts Festival (formerly Melbourne Festival), which runs from October 2 to 20.

The Tokyo-based collective is comprised of mathematicians, architects, animators, engineers and more, and is known for its large-scale futuristic works that use cutting-edge technology but still evoke the beauty of the natural world.
