Teeming With Art

Silicon Valley’s love of the digital extends beyond the computer screen, as 200,000 visitors proved in attending Pace Gallery’s blockbuster 2016 exhibition, Living Digital Space and Future Parks, featuring the Japanese digital art collective teamLab. The oversize pieces included a tunnel with lights changing color as stars “exploded” and a room where flowers grew on the walls and butterflies flitted by. Not everyone agrees that digital art is art, but Pace is a believer. TeamLab’s new show, Continuous Life and Death at the Now of Eternity, runs through Jan. 6. The seven colorful interactive works reflective of the ukiyo-e (floating world) tradition, comprised of one to eight screens, are closer in size to a large TV, a better fit for any living room or lobby. Pace Palo Alto President Elizabeth Sullivan calls it “an amazing opportunity to welcome new audiences to the gallery to experience teamLab’s signature digital worlds.” 229 Hamilton Ave., Palo Alto
