Teshima 8 Million Lab is located in the seaside area of Kou in southwestern Teshima. In the Shinto religion, “Yaoyorozu” (which literally means “8 Million”) is a word used to describe the myriad of gods believed to reside in almost anything – such as the wind, ocean, trees and animals. Conceived by artist Sputniko!, Teshima 8 Million Lab sets out to create new members of Yaoyorozu, forming a mythology from emerging science and art.
Far from the big city and located on a site that is blessed with an abundance of nature, the facility invites to explore alternative perspectives on our future as we continue to move forward with science.
