Nature brings us both blessings and disaster, and with the progress of civilization, there are benefits and negative implications: nature and civilization are always connected. There is no absolute malicious intent or universal beauty. There is no easy way to understand this relationship and no simple way to arrange our feelings and our sensitivities towards it. Nevertheless, we want to affirm that we are alive regardless of the situation. Life is beautiful.

The DDP is a multi-cultural complex designed by Zaha Hadid, located at the Dongdaemun History & Culture Park Station in Seoul. The DDP is a space where design trends begin and various cultural exchanges take place. Featured in the New York Times’ “52 Places to Go in 2015,” the DDP has welcomed countless visitors, establishing itself as a landmark in Seoul.

In fall 2020, teamLab transformed the DDP into an immersive, interactive space where visitors can contemplate the continuity between themselves and the world . teamLab: LIFE explores the relationship between the self and the world and new perceptions through art created using digital technology.
