For ScanSnap Community Blog readers who remember this blog titled, ScanSnap SV600 Helps Bring Drawings to Life in “Sketch Aquarium” – then get excited, because this digital exhibit has made its way to the heart of Silicon Valley! But this time, it’s making an even bigger splash in the art and digital tech community.

Pace’s new Art + Technology program and teamLab, the Japanese tech-art collective, have teamed up to present “Living Digital Space and Future Parks,” a large-scale digital art exhibition. Think of this as a digital playground for all ages.

The new exhibition invites participants to immerse themselves in the multi-room environments spanning 20,000ft² and showcasing 20 digital works. Several of the works on show—including Light Sculpture of Flames and Black Waves in Infinity—will enjoy their international debut while other works—including Flowers and People, Cannot be Controlled but Live Together – A Whole Year per Hour and Flutter of Butterflies Beyond Borders—will be shown in North America for the first time.

One of the most exciting and interactive exhibits is called The Sketch Aquarium. Visitors use crayons to color paper cutouts of marine animals such as octopus, fish or sharks, and then scan the creation with the ScanSnap SV600, and it will be added to a giant digital wall which resembles a cartoon aquarium. This building is dedicated entirely for kids, but adults can play too! Watch the video below to see how The Sketch Aquarium works.
