Based in Barcelona, Be Another Lab is made up of Philippe Bertrand, Daniel Gonzalez Franco, Christian Cherene, and Arthur Pointea, a collection of interdisciplinary artists whose fields range from programming and electronic engineering to interactive system design and neuro-rehabilitation.
Together, the goal of Be Another Lab is to explore the concepts of empathy through technology, science, and art.“We believe this allows for a deeper experience for a user, knowing that their point of view is that of an actual human being, and not a virtual avatar,” says Bertrand.
