Help visitors bring their sea creature artworks to life in a teamLab interactive digital installation.
Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2020, through Sunday, Jan. 31, 2021
As a teamLab education volunteer, you are an essential part of the education and frontlines teams. You will extend a warm welcome to visitors when they enter the Shriram Educational Learning Center to experience teamLab Sketch Aquarium or teamLab Sketch Ocean. As seen in the video and images on the linked webpages, you will help visitors bring their sea creature artwork to life in this interactive digital installation. Visitors create their own sea creatures using 10 templates (seahorse, octopus, fish in various shapes) and then scan them so the images appear on floor-to-ceiling digital screens, swimming along with other merry sea life. teamLab Sketch Aquarium and teamLab Sketch Ocean are staffed by both museum employees and volunteers.
