Immerse yourself in Helsinki’s alternative reality space
Amos Rex’s inaugural exhibit by Japanese art collective teamLab takes visitors on an immersive journey through water, light, creatures, and flowers.
[↑] teamLab: Massless features five digital artworks created by digital projection and an LCD screen-based display. Amos Rex is a 2,200 square-metre underground gallery space in the heart of Helsinki.
[↑] Vortex of Light Particles is teamLab’s newest digital installation and features in Amos Rex’s largest space, which is a vast domed roof underneath a courtyard. The movement of a waterfall being sucked up by a vortex creates the light and sound installation.

[↑] The real-time installation of Crows is an intense and fast-moving look at a flock of birds. Accompanied by dizzying music, crows crash into each other, scatter, and then turn into flowers.
