TeamLab SuperNature Macao is a groundbreaking permanent interactive experience opening at The Venetian Macao in June, 2020. Cotai Expo boasts 5,000 square meters of labyrinthine floor space. With eight meter-high ceilings throughout, the space is transformed by teamLab into an extremely complex, three-dimensional world across varying elevations, featuring immersive and compelling artworks.
This is a single, massive world comprised of works by art collective teamLab that aims to explore new perceptions of the world and the continuity between humans and nature. It is a “body immersive” museum centered around a group of works that blur the boundaries between people’s bodies and art.

People become one with the art, blurring their perception of the boundaries between the body and the artwork, and thereby recognizing the continuity between the self and the world. There are a lot more installations on-site, so be sure to head there with the whole family! Kids are going to be thrilled with all the fun and interaction teamLab SuperNature allows.
