About the project Edit

What if you could create a scientist and an artist as one so that they can produce true innovation by breaking the patterns of traditional research and development just by searching scientific literature and technology that would give substance to the crazy idea of this creative duo? This type of "artscience" experiment called Le Laboratoire exists in the heart of Paris, a stone's throw from Louvre. It is a research and exhibition centre founded in 1997 by Franco-American David Edwards, an author and bio-engineering professor at Harvard.

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

Since opening, Le Laboratoire has received numerous international awards for the development and presentation of art and avant-garde designs making its way to forefront of contemporary science. The work at Laboratoire is the result of up to 2 years of testing that combine artistic and scientific approaches in a single project by bringing together great artists and researchers. Le Laboratoire is both a place for experimental research and a place to present work.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

In this place, the public is invited to know and capture the whole process leading to the creation of a work of art, object and concept. To do this, the centre aims to bring about change in our culture, industry, society and educational system with the support of partners who share their interest in the exploration process rather than on products that could sell out. Testing at Le Laboratoire is supported by public meetings between artists and scientists. These evenings are an opportunity to debate and engage in dialogue with the public.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

This combination between artists and scientists is foreseeable in other cities around the world. These ArtScience tests can also be used to solve real problems. xxx
