ABOUT THE METALAB (ENGLISH)
(en) Since 2002, the Metalab is the Society for Arts and Technology [SAT]’s research and development lab. The Metalab has a dual mission: to stimulate the emergence of new immersive experiences, and to make their design and authoring accessible to artists and creators through an ecosystem of free software.
The Metalab’s research fields – telepresence, immersion, video mapping, and spatialized sound – are explored through research and production projects. The Metalab team is comprised of 5 to 10 people with various technical expertise including digital audio, computer graphics, networks, software development and multimedia integration. The Metalab welcomes interns in a variety of subjects, even outside the strict scope of the laboratory expertises.
The Metalab’s work aims to cover the whole pipeline of immersive and distributed content production. A description of the ecosystem is available on Metalab's website. They are designed as flexible tools, and supports Metalab’s research and partnerships. This software suite is used by the SAT during creative residencies and is at the heart of telepresence projects, in particular between venues (Scènes ouvertes). Metalab’s partners include artists, university researchers, schools, designers and private companies.
Internships and jobs opportunities are frequent at the Metalab, and are documented here
