Beam'Art was born from the partnership of two engineers/researchers, Antoine Vanel and Benjamin Petit. Both worked in the field of computer vision, real-time computer graphics and virtual reality and have thus acquired the major IT skills which they use today for their digital creations.
Their work is based on interactive experience. They create live performances with various artists (dancers, painters, jugglers…) as well as direct interaction with the audience through their set ups. They focus mainly on the public’s participation and the spontaneous generation of video and light content, so that viewers are no longer passive. They presented Hypermetrop, a live performance combining interactive architectural mapping and augmented dance, during Lyon Lights Festival in 2012.
