The upcoming exhibit at the Dojima River Forum in the Fukushima Ward of Osaka, Japan is comprised of ocean-inspired art. Conceived by multi-faceted creative collective teamLab with input from Nihonga painter Hiroshi Senju, the gallery event is an immersive experience that mimics the majesty of oceanic life. The 'Waterness' exhibition boasts installations of ocean-inspired art like 'Black Waves: Wander, Discover and Re-emerge.' This immersive piece engulfs visitors "in a spacious dark room with huge digitized screens, portraying monstrous swells."

The experience is both hauntingly beautiful and slightly unsettling. For one, the audience faces the possibility of exploring the brute force and the aesthetic beauty of nature. However, one is also faced with something unknown and powerful. Hence, the ocean-inspired art in Waterness has the potential to be a strong and emotive piece of work.
