“Catching and Collecting in the Dinosaur Forest”: A Galaxy & teamLab Collaboration

Step Into Digital Wonderland

An exciting new collaboration between tech giant, Samsung Galaxy and world-renowned Japanese art collocation, teamLab, named “Catching and Collecting in the Dinosaur Forest” promises enchantment and engagement to Tokyo‘s Harajuku district visitors. This digital art exhibition provides a unique opportunity for visitors to interact with various digital creatures in their virtual habitat.

An Interactive Experience

The premise of the exhibition centers around catching and studying digitally-rendered prehistoric animals using an app provided on a Galaxy smartphone. Visitors are encouraged to engage gently with the exhibited creatures, because any perceived threat from touch, might cause them to disappear into their forest habitat.

A successful approach results in captured creatures on-screen for further study. Collaborative efforts are also encouraged; visitors can team up with their friends or other visitors to shepherd these dinosaurs, then deploy the Study Net tool within the app to capture them together.

Exhibition Details

The exhibition is held daily from 11am until 7pm at the Galaxy Harajuku venue. Entry is free but requires advance reservation to regulate visitor numbers and avoid overcrowding. Reservations can be made as early as three days ahead via the event website.

Entering The Realm of Prehistoric Creatures

Upon entering the exhibition area, attendees are ushered into an immersive environment where neon-painted landscapes teem with extinct beings. The exhibit provides a unique bridge between reality and fantasy, flooded with rainbow-clad dinosaurs weaving through trees constituting an otherworldly forest.

Visitors are lent a pre-equipped Galaxy smartphone on arrival that hosts the guiding camera app and teamLab app for optimal interaction with the exhibit.

Educational Aspects

While primarily entertaining, Exhibit also incorporates elements that educate visitors about prehistoric life. The apps provide interesting facts related to physical characteristics, ecology (habitat, food source), human-animal interaction etc., upon successfully capturing each creature. Ultimately facilitating collective learning through individual discoveries.

Various dinosaur types including Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops grace the forest landscape at “Galaxy & teamLab: Catching and Collecting Dinosaur Forest” exhibition.

Each successful catch appears in your personal collection book preserving individual exploration-tale while tracking magical adventures within this mesmeric dinosaur kingdom.

Exhibition-goers can enhance the interactive-experience by engaging physically beyond digital interaction. Touching a passing dinosaur or standing against walls triggers unique responses such as rainbow-splatter. Floor-dwelling creatures can be herded with foot movements offering yet another dimension to this magical experience.
