Children’s brightly-coloured drawings of fish, squid and seahorses came to life on September 24 at an art display on the outskirts of Tokyo after they were scanned and projected onto a gigantic wall.
The creator of the installation is Akitae Matsumoto, a father of two. He works for teamLab, a company in Tokyo which makes interactive installations combining art with technology. “The education of the future is more than rote learning. It is about building new things. This comes from being creative and collaborating. I want to provide this sort of stimulation to the kids and with any luck, I hope they will feel it,” Matsumoto said.
