About Us
We are Harvard FAS CAMLab.

Integrating humanistic inquiry with cutting-edge technology and design, CAMLab explores innovative, interdisciplinary ways of showcasing art and culture through immersive installations, exhibitions, films, digital publications, and other multimedia forms.

What We Do
CAMLab creates and curates multimedia storytelling.

CAMLab creates and curates forward-looking, experimental work that explores enduring questions of human consciousness. Using cutting-edge multimedia storytelling and multi-sensory technologies, we model cultural and historical experiences that engage and transport participants beyond the here and now, across the continuum of time and space.

Guiding modern audiences through these immersive, imaginative spaces, we enable them to discover and access forms of knowledge that are otherwise impossible.

Our Story
We combine humanistic inquiry with cutting-edge technology and design.

No two CAMLab projects are the same—but each is grounded in a process that incorporates both expansive research and groundbreaking creative practice.

In some instances, digital technology and sensorial techniques breathe new life into an archival record. In others, it’s the archival record that lends form, substance, and nuance to projects that begin as aesthetic concepts.
