Create With Us
We are all about creation. And we can’t create without a strong creative community. That’s why Lightbox Labs was launched in an effort to support artists and technology enthusiasts as well as to create a conversation around experiential.
Our Lightbox Labs Residency enables and empowers artists to develop new works, encourage experimentation and push boundaries through new, digital mediums available through our creative platform.
Our Lightbox Labs’ Decode Experiential is an ongoing artist and talk series that was developed by Lightbox’s CEO, Daphne Jouanneteau and Jess Conatser, founder of studio As We Are.
As supporters of the arts community and enthusiasts of new technology, we launched Lightbox Lab to develop an artistic community with an emphasis on giving artists access to the unique tools and space that Lightbox has to offer. Lightbox Lab enables artists to develop new works in the most advanced and immersive tech space in New York city. Our Lightbox Lab program focuses on developing meaningful experiences and exhibits as well as expanding Lightbox’s impact in the creative technology community.
With Lightbox Lab, our space and tools become your canvas. Our ideal artistic community leverages the technology and the venue to elevate their work and transform the creative platform.
