Sand’s China’s teamLab SuperNature Macao at The Venetian Macao has received a bronze Stevie award in the ‘Innovation in Entertainment Events’ category at the eighth annual Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards. An online awards ceremony will be held on July 14, 2021.

teamLab SuperNature Macao is an immersive interactive experience for families and visitors of all ages, featuring cutting-edge art installations in a massive, three-dimensional space. Located at The Venetian Macao’s Cotai Expo, the permanent exhibition occupies over 5,000 square metres of labyrinthine floor space with impressive eight-metre high ceilings.

teamLab SuperNature Macao spearheads a new generation of art where visitors can change the nature of the works in real time, directly affecting outcomes through synergistic interaction. Artworks are not pre-recorded images but created by a computer programme that continuously renders and reconfigures them based on human involvement. Previous visual states can never be replicated and will never reoccur.

Sean McCreery, Senior Vice President – Resort Operations, Sands China Ltd., said: “teamLab SuperNature Macao represents a new technological benchmark in entertainment where every participant can enjoy an experience totally unique to themselves. These remarkable installations allow visitors to explore new perceptions of the world and the relationship between humans, nature and technology. Receiving a prestigious Stevie award in recognition of this step change is very gratifying and encourages us to continue pushing the boundaries in entertainment and recreation.”

Formed in 2001, teamLab’s international, interdisciplinary group of specialists includes artists, programmers, engineers, CG animators, mathematicians and architects whose collaborative practice seeks to navigate the confluence of art, science, technology, design and the natural world. teamLab exhibitions have been included in “Top 10 Art Exhibitions” from 2015 until 2018 by leading design magazine designboom, and listed in “The World’s Greatest Places 2019” by Time Magazine.
