Once upon a time you could visit nuclear power plants, but that was before…Complex machinery comprised of a jumble of tubing, dials and flashing buttons is what stood out in these visits.

Sport and digital creation: when athletes and artists share the same playground

In the wake of the new modes of creation from digital cultures – and of the big principles of hybridisation it highlights – the sport and technological creation recently operate a singular coming together, as much around shared pedagogical and social emulating experiences (MOOC, hackhaton, fitlab) as for the definition of the latest tools proceeding from gaming and virtual reality devices: new configurations that even attract professional athletes and in which digital artists h...
