Cross border living labs preview
Cross Border Living Labs (C2L3Play) is a living lab for the cultural and creative industries of the cross-border region of Hauts-de-France, Wallonia and Flanders. We are convinced that through co-creation and innovation processes we can make projects grow.
This project is supported by Interreg Vlaanderen-Wallonië-Frankrijk, financed by the European Union and funded by 8 partners in Flanders and Belgium.

Pedigree, Jonas Vansteenkiste (VL)
Jonas Vansteenkiste is a multimedia visual artist based in Kortrijk, who works around the concept of spaces. He refers to and uses both physical and psychological architectural elements that tell us more about our being. He constructs places or situations that can be described as "mental spaces".
The project Pedigree (houses as containers of memory) starts from a research into the house and its history. For this purpose, Jonas was able to call on open source data of buildings from Leiedal. UPHF Valenciennes supported him in defining parameters (material, formal similarities, ...) to link houses in a pedigree. Jonas is investigating houses in Flanders, Wallonia and northern France to find a lineage of houses. The research maps out differences and similarities in a visual work. The data is finally printed in clay and brought together in an installation in the Budalab of Designregion Kortrijk.

Le projet Pedigree (houses as containers of memory) part d'une recherche sur la maison et son histoire. À cette fin, Jonas a pu utiliser des données open source provenant de bâtiments à Leiedal. UPHF Valenciennes has assisted in the definition of parameters (materials, formal similitudes, etc.) for the relocation of the houses in a generic tree. Jonas recherche des maisons en Flandre, en Wallonie et dans le Nord de la France pour trouver une filiation de maisons. La recherche répertorie les différences et les similitudes dans une œuvre visuelle. The data is finally printed in the argile and assembled in an installation at Budalab in Designregio Kortrijk.
Promotech, François Vermeirsche (FR)
Protomotech provides environmental control and information sharing solutions by deploying autonomous sensors for:
- Climate monitoring of artworks and archives
- Highlighting a work of art or a remarkable element using digital pop-up labelsLouvre-Lens Vallée took the project on a 36-hour hackathon (Flash Worksout) to come up with innovative services to improve visitor experiences in museums. In addition, Designregio Kortrijk provided UX design expertise for the mobile application through Lieven Degrauwe.
