Three organizations comprise ASL. The Lab Paris, or Le Laboratoire, is the first ArtScience Lab. Founded in 2007, The Lab Paris is a close partner to major cultural institutions in Paris and the home of two or three original cultural experiments each year. These experiments, initiated by leading international artists and designers, have since the opening of The Lab Parisproduced works of art and design now in permanent museum collections, galleries, and stores around the world. The Lab Cambridge is the latest ArtScience Lab. Set to open in early 2014, The Lab Cambridge will be a close partner to major biotech, high tech and education organizations and the home of the educational programs developed since the early 2000s based on David Edwards’ teaching methods at Harvard University. The Lab Cambridge will, from its opening, host the works of art and design developed at The Lab Paris, while The Lab Paris will participate in the educational programs developed at The Lab Cambridge.
Through these two Labs the major cultural institutions of Paris meet up with the major technology and research institutions of Cambridge. The Lab Store is the third ArtScience Lab. This translational and retail organization develops the novel technologies and designs of David Edwards and his collaborators and exhibits these works in original experimental retail stores in Paris and Cambridge. ArtScience Labs remains today a small dynamic organization of around 20 full time employees in France and the USA. A close partner with Harvard University, The Walt Disney Company, and other international educational and commercial organizations, ArtScience Labs seeks to maintain an intimate fast-reacting environment that, with its spinoff organizations and partners, aims at charitable goals by way of a blend of educational, cultural and commercial translational mechanisms. Fully sustained by the products and programs of ArtScience Lab Inspired organizations, ArtScience Labs provides available resources for idea development of young people around the world.
