First Ladies Enjoy Digital Arts



First Ladies enjoy digital arts

The first ladies of Japan and the United States have enjoyed digital art works at a museum in Tokyo's Odaiba district.

The 10,000 square-meter museum features state-of the-art digital technology. It's run by teamLab, a group that has exhibited digital art in Japan and abroad.



Akie Abe and Melania Trump arrived there around 10 AM on Sunday.

They visited a room where stick-shaped LED light bulbs shine like falling rain, and another room with mirrors and lamps hanging from the ceiling that constantly changed color.

The first ladies were then joined by a group of schoolchildren, and together with them they drew pictures of fish on paper. The pictures were converted to digital images and projected onto a wall showing them swimming in the sea.

When the children asked Melania for her autograph, the US First Lady wrote "Be Best!" That's the slogan of her campaign against online bullying.

The first ladies are scheduled to join their husbands to watch the final day of the Grand Sumo Tournament before having dinner at a restaurant in Tokyo.
