Art Meets Tech! The Constant Gardeners At Ueno Park In Tokyo

A showcase of the future.

Art, like style, comes in a variety of forms and disciplines. Today we get a look at a creative blend of Japanese culture and tradition and modern technology. Today we get to check out The Constant Gardeners, an art installation at this year’s Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic games.

Designed by Jason Bruges Studio, the installation uses the zen garden to explore the relationship between art, tech, and sports. The project is driven by software that looks at athletes movements and translates them into illustrations. These designs are then created in unison by four giant robotic arms. One hundred fifty illustrations were created during the duration of the games in Ueno park.

The Constant Gardeners was commissioned by The Tokyo Metropolitan Government and Arts Council Tokyo and are in partnership with the British Council. The aim of the project was to cause reflection in the public, where robotics and other tech can be used for creative, sustainable purposes.

Check out the clip below for a closer look and find out more from Jason Bruges Studio. While you’re at it, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more from the intersection of art, tech, and sports coming very soon.
