DIGITALARTI PRODUCTIONS WITH TALENTED CREATORS
Digitalarti develops many digital productions in its Artlab with talented artists. An artist, Digitalarti or one of our clients may propose the preliminary project leading to a production. These very innovative productions (3 patents pending) are exhibited at events, exhibitions or for permanent installations in configurations adapted to the location and theme.
From among the many proposals received, Digitalarti selects the best productions to fund and develop with its selection committee. This committee brings together a spectrum of interests and meets regularly to select co-productions displaying artistic, technical and commercial potential.
We would like, when possible and desirable on an artistic, technical and commercial basis, for a greater number of people to benefit from a major work by producing it in limited series, agreed upon in collaboration with the artist.
DIGITALARTI NEW MEDIA PRODUCTION ORGANISATION
This type of production that is new to digital art is inspired by a long-standing practice in cinema. Although the fields are different, the principle of involving others to imagine, create, fund, promote and sell a work is the same.
The roles are basically as follows:
– The artist is responsible for the work and the creation of the project in collaboration with the Digitalarti teams.
– Digitalarti is responsible for the production and funding, the resources whether material or human and for the promotion and marketing of the work, in collaboration with the artist.
Created by Digitalarti in 2011 the aim of the Artlab is to welcome artists to create with the Digitalarti teams of engineers, designers and coders with a creative, collaborative and innovative approach. The approach is multidisciplinary, at the crossroads between the possibilities of technology and the inspiration of artists. The creations may be new artworks, new or adapted versions of existing ones for a specific place or a client event.
The Artlab is a creative space where artists design imaginative works in collaboration with engineers. It is a place for research, development and prototyping dedicated to digital arts and providing artists with advanced technical skills, as well as considerable material resources to enable works to be produced. Two parties often co-produce the works embraced within the Artlab: the artist with a creative original idea and Digitalarti with its material, human and financial resources. Co-productions are created here through prototypes, testing and research.
Artlab welcomes artists in 3 different ways:
– Resident: collaboration between an artist and the Digitalarti Artlab leading to the production of a work, usually a co-production
– Visitor: an autonomous project by an artist / technician, benefitting from the space, tools, atmosphere and guidance from the Artlab team (free in exchange for participating in lab life, exchanging expertise and knowledge…)
– Service: an artist entrusts Artlab to carry out the technical part of their project.
Projects are selected according to several criteria: artistic quality, technical knowledge of the artist, potential impact on the career of the artist/technician, contribution to the development of Artlab, ability of the project and artist to integrate the life of Artlab, potential for dissemination of the creation.
In addition to it’s team of engineers, technicians and designers, the Artlab has numerous machines from computer-aided tools, CNC, 3D printers, laser cutting and electronic card engraving including:
– Digital / Computer: The Artlab is equipped with several computers with all available operating systems (Linux, Windows, Mac OSX)
– PCB : the Artlab has the necessary equipment for the production of printed circuits prototypes.
– Electronic work: The Artlab is equipped with the tools necessary for basic or advanced electronic assembly and with many electronic parts and kits

SenseImage is the first multi-shaped, flexible video tactile surface ever created. The patented technology uses a display interface that connects surfaces of all shapes and sizes, and can go on the floor, walls and ceilings alike. The result is an immersive experience that you can walk on, touch even lay […]
Loplite is an interactive and collective drawing installation. Using flashlights, light sticks and laser pointers as “brushes”, one draws on the screen by pointing the light to the wall or by manipulating the stick in front of the wall. The shape and the location of the light manipulated in front of […]
During 3 months, a monumental art installation by Stéfane Perraud lighted up the historical rosette of the Paris Gare de l’Est train station. The light animation reacts to the passengers arrivals and departures. This artwork was tailor made for an artistic call to tender of the national railroad company (SNCF). Visible at day […]
The project “fleeing mirror” is an object that has all the attributes of a mirror, but contrary to its primary function, prevents bodies and faces looking to see their reflection.The object rotates once its board detection system identifies someone facing him. By systematically stealing under the visitor, a lawsuit ensued […]
Associated with the Mediator Robots the artistic project “Notre Bon Plaisir” ( Our Pleasure) is a robotic video installation in which the visitor is attacked by a pack of destitute robots. Each of these crawling objects carries on its back semi-transparent screens displaying a human figure whose energetic moves are synchronized with the […]
Bluer than Blue is an interactive installation consisting of an aquarium filled with jelly and an electroencephalogram (EEG) headset, which measures and translates brainwaves. Inside the aquarium, two motorized laser beams reach almost invisible phosphorescent pigments. The viewer experiences the piece through physical interaction, by wearing the EEG headset and […]
TTLamp is a modular and connected lamp, a plug and play device that lets anyone build their own light source. Produced by Digitalarti, the TTLamp lets individuals build their own a lamp by simply assembling modules. A new, creative light source can be created in a matter of seconds, allowing the […]
For the Charles de Gaulle Airport passengers, Digitalarti set up an immersive and interactive artwork on the 3 walls of the new international terminal boarding space thanks to a proposal of Aéroports de Paris. Created by Miguel Chevalier (see his profile) with a software based on Music2eye and set up by Muchomedia, Sur-Natures is a virtual garden made up with fifteen […]
Lumifolia is made of shrubs. Their leaves react to humans strokes with sounds and lights. The installation is an interactive garden that questions sensitively, artistic and musical relationships with the plants and the environment. The plants are awakened in contact and subtle electrostatic induction of the human body through the […]
The Human Mind invites the visitors to enter into a dark room where an automated voice is live broadcasted according to a computer-generated speech.
