We turn to The Lab to stretch our minds! Here we invent new technologies that show us glimpses of the future and reframe how we see the present, giving us an ever expanding box of tools. Time in The Lab feeds our need to create, the platforms that result become the frameworks for our client projects.
INVENTIONS / TOOLS / RAW MATERIALS:
- Live-streaming events with realtime interaction
- Webcam controlled interaction
- Live web-fabricated telephone calls
- Interactive music videos
- Interactive installations
- Film and Digital Production
- 3d Animation
- Open Frameworks
