Every year, V2_ invites a small group of up-and-coming artists to spend their summer in the V2_Lab for an intense short-term residency. During these so-called Summer Sessions, the selected artists are given the opportunity to (further) develop an artwork in close collaboration with V2_'s expert developers, curator and project managers.
This year’s Summer Sessions welcomed artists Anouk Wipprecht, Joachim Rotteveel, Mark Shepard and Ivan Henriques into the V2_Lab to work on projects in the fields of augmented reality, wearable technology, and ecology - the three central research themes of the V2_Lab. By holding the residencies in parallel, V2_ aimed to promote a creative synergy between these up-and-coming artists. The outcome of this synergy was showcased in this special summer edition of Test_Lab. As it is custom to V2_’s Test_Lab, the four residency projects were demonstrated live and the audience was invited to assess the works hands-on.
