Six projects out of seven up and running... Presenting the tangible results of thecamp’s first collaborative residency.
This intelligent bee-drone, which analyzes air quality, will soon have a little sibling: a second prototype created in partnership with a local manufacturer of air quality sensors. The new addition will be presented at thecamp in September at the “Air Quality Makers’ Night”, which will bring together professionals from the sector. The aim is to start the marketing phase before the end of the year.

This interactive olfactory installation, which fosters encounters between strangers, was exhibited in Montreal in May as part of C2, the flagship digital art event. Capsule has also been exhibited in Paris.
The interactive artistic installation Interlude, which provides city dwellers with a comprehensive immersive experience to help them wind down and re-connect with themselves was exhibited for 15 days at the town hall of Paris’ 10th arrondissement. Interlude has just landed back at thecamp, where it will be exhibited over the next few weeks. Discussions are underway with SNCF French Railways’ Gares & Connexions division, which is dedicated to its users’ in-station experience, for Interlude to be set up temporarily at the Aix-en-Provence TGV station.
