About Long Distance Laboratory (LDL)

LDL is an annual open-ended artistic project. LDL develops tools that facilitate remote communication and collaboration over distance and time. These tools mostly operate in the digital space but often also extend into the physical space. Under the framework of Connecting Spaces Hong Kong – Zurich, LDL’s primary goal is to intensify the connectivity between Connecting Space Hong Kong and the ZHdK Campus in Zurich.
