Lab212 was founded in 2008, by a group of friends who all graduated in Interactive Design at the School of Visual Art les Gobelins in Paris. In 2015, they are Ambassadors representing the artistic field at the Assises de la Jeune Création, for the French Ministry of Culture and Communication.
“Encoding the evanescent relationships between physical and virtual worlds as strings of bits and bytes written in ones and zeros, the French artist collective Lab212 draws on science, videogames and music to build poetic and playful sensory experiences. Using craft and technology to ignite imagination and convey emotions, day-to-day human gestures are magnified to reach the inaccessible, the shifting of the gaze reveals the imperceptible.” Caroline Hirt, Curator
