reakt_lab is a decentralized center of artistic production. It produces performances and installations, hybrids sometimes difficult to define.
A research on the contemporary, studying and re-using some of its peculiarities. Technology and participation, interaction and multimedia. These are the minimum common denominators of the research and production carried out by reakt_lab.
Often the body is joined to the machine, analog to digital, crafts to electronics.
So we discover that the contemporary is similar to the archaic. That the man has an even greater need of prostheses. That art is more and more teknè. And vice versa.
