LabElysée is the museum’s new space dedicated to digital culture. A living laboratory at the heart of the museum, LabElysée questions the way that a cultural institution dedicated to photography plays with new technologies. At a time when Internet has become a creative tool, LabElysée invites the visitor, to the museum and online, to follow and contribute to the development of the photography museum of the future.
From October 2018 to January 2019, INT is in residence at the Musée de l'Elysée to develop a sound narrative device driven by eye movement. Unlike a traditional audioguide, the system aims to provide information about the work and its context based on what the visitor is watching.
Hexagone18 is the fruit of a carte blanche granted to the French artist and photographer Aurélie Pétrel. As part of this project, it is taking possession of the LabElysée by installing an immersive hexagonal structure.
