Lab212 is an interdisciplinary artistic collective founded in 2008 by a group of friends with complementary backgrounds in applied arts, electronics and animation. For 10 years, the collective has been developing an innovative approach that is both experimental and empirical.
Through the conception and realization of physical interactive devices, its members question, experiment and divert new media: they question the quality of our relationship with technology, the place and the role of man in relation to the machine. The Lab212 Collective regularly collaborates with public and private cultural institutions on issues of transmission and sharing in the cultural and artistic fields for the general public.
