Digging The New Digital Art Museum In Tokyo

Otherwise known as the MORI Building Digital Art Museum: EPSON teamLab Borderless. Obviously, apologies to Dr Strangelove.

No matter the name, the place is new and it definitely is cool. What's a digital art museum? Simple answer: a big, dark warehouse covered mostly in dark carpet so digital images can be projected on the walls. Then add some lanterns, balloons, some netting. How about ramps? OK, maybe not a simple answer. Just go.

Lots of rooms with digital projections, dragging you into a netherworld. We're there!


Made to be photographed. Or experienced in 3D.

Here's a room full of lamps that change color based on some sort of algorithm. Sure.


Some of the more creative elements - more "art" in the digital art definition - were found within moving projections. Get your exotic flower animal fix.

An impressive wave room inspired by famed Japanese woodcut genius Hokusai.


Flower explosion. Really hanging out, getting a little close to a scene in the hippie 1960's movie, The Trip.

Trippy Sarah.

The Beauty Of Point Reyes National Seashore

North of San Francisco is Point Reyes, a park to remind you how stunning land next to the mighty Pacific Ocean can be. Time to take a hike.

Looking North, up the Point.


The landscape tilts toward the other-worldly.

Fellow hiker and a sister.


The place was bursting with blooms, so thick that walking became fruitless. And then there were elk. Yup.

Time for a swim.
