teamLab opened a permanent outdoor exhibition in nature-filled Higashi-Tokorozawa Park in Saitama in August 2020. The sound-producing, color-changing ovoid shapes in the forest react to wind and touch, and light up at night, and will dazzle all visitors who come to this picturesque and woodsy park.

An interactive outdoor exhibit by teamLabs opened August 1, 2020 on the grounds of Higashi-Tokorozawa Park in Saitama Prefecture. "Resonating Life in the Acorn Forest" combines light, color, and sound in the Musashino Woods area of the park, and features interactive pieces that visitors can enjoy in an open space.

The exhibit featuring artistic ovoids (egg-like shapes) will delight guests as the shapes reflect and respond to the environment around them with color and sound. They also react to human touch and wind. One can view this piece during the day to see the blue sky and green forest reflected in the ovoids. Be sure to bring a camera to this paradise of nature and digital art near Tokyo.
