WOW: City Lights and Woodland Shade - Digital Art Encounters 

City Lights 

Immerse yourself in this fabulous 360-degree visual studio. WOW's 'Tokyo Light Odyssey' takes you on a mind mending ride through a sleepless Tokyo. From petrol stations to convenience stores, a ride on the Yamanote Line to zooming up a skyscraper it makes you feel pretty dizzy. There is a definite sense of sway. Just brilliant for kids of all ages. 5 min film. 

                   

Woodland Shade 

POPPO takes you on a charming journey into the folk art of Japan's countryside. Kokeshi's are wooden dolls from the Tohoku region of Japan. The head and body are turned on a lathe by hand and then decorated with vibrant painted features. Many believe that these lovely little wooden creations protect children from harm and warn off evil spirits. 

                 

Clever touch screens allow children to carve their own doll or wooden toy before they are digitalised before your eyes and transferred onto the walls of the gallery.  Children can also use digital photo tech to project their own face onto a Kokeshi creating their own unique doll. 

We loved the hugely clever POPPO Woods. Place one of the magnetic tree trunks on the animated wall and watch the colourful birds fly in and land on top of your tree. Each bird is unique to the region of Tohoku. 

Totally delightful for all ages.
