Every year, V2_ Institute for the Unstable Media invites a small group of up-and-coming artists to spend their summer at V2_Lab for an intense short-term residency. During these so-called Summer Sessions, the selected artists are given the opportunity to develop an artwork in close collaboration with V2_'s expert developers, curators and project managers. 

This year’s Summer Sessions welcomed three individual artists and two collectives into V2_Lab to realize projects in the fields of augmented reality, wearable technology, and ecology - the three current research themes of V2_Lab. By holding the Summer Sessions residencies in parallel, V2_ aimed to promote a creative synergy between the selected artists. The outcome of this process will be presented during Test_Lab: Summer Sessions 2011. In the Test_Lab tradition, the projects will be demonstrated live and the audience will be invited to ‘test’ the artworks hands-on.

The evening will be closed with summer cocktails and live music by acclaimed Los Angeles based producer AFTA-1.

Test_Lab is a bimonthly public event organized by V2_ Institute for the Unstable Media that provides an informal setting for the presentation, demonstration, testing and discussion of artistic research and development (aRt&D).
