Production of original works
The Production Lab is involved with the production of original installation pieces and dance/theater performances together with artists.
Works incorporating media technology take on shape within a complex web of various elements such as (specially developed) software/hardware, lighting and other fixtures, the design of exhibition signboards, and acoustic/visual settings.
The Production Lab’s ability to deal with all of these elements enables flexible, high-quality artwork production.
Another role of the Production Lab is to ensure and further deepen curators’ and engineers’ correct understanding of the artistic visions they are presented with.
The advance of such production work from conception to final output within a consistent system is a special characteristic of the Production Lab, which has so far produced a large number of “YCAM commissioned” works. Many of the works realized at YCAM have subsequently traveled to festivals and exhibitions, or won prizes at competitions around the world.
Furthermore, software and hardware developed in the process, together with the knowledge and experience gained thereby, are in turn applied to workshop programs devised by the Education Lab, and to the activities of the Regional Research Lab.
