Institutional Presentation Statement
Arts Alliance Laboratory conducts experiments in digital media. It’s parent company, London-based Venture Capital firm Arts Alliance, conducts experiments in funding innovative Internet entrepreneurs. The Lab is an experiment in whether high art and high finance can successfully learn from, and prosper along with, one another. As the technology continues to advance, the key factor in creating successful products will be the nature of the user’s experience of that product. By focusing our work at the intersection of art and technology, we hope to create both unexpectedly compelling and unexpectedly useful pieces that help illuminate the future of user experience.
