Launched today, Web Lab is a fascinating initiative from Google Creative Labs and the Science Museum in London, comprising a series of five installations that will bring the Internet and the Google Chrome browser to life.

These “live experiments” range from a universal, collaborative orchestra, to a robot that takes Google’s uploaded images to create sketches in sand.  The Lab Tag Explorer project visualizes the profiles of visitors to the online website as a series of graphic and colorful shapes that can be seen on the Web Lab homepage.

In addition to the museum’s real-time exhibition, visitors will be able to interact with installations online by visiting the Chrome Web Lab website, thus enabling anyone, anywhere in the world to virtually access the displays.

“Through 5 interactive Chrome Experiments, Web Lab explores the extraordinary workings of the Internet. Each experiment explores and demonstrates a different web theme. Worldwide visitors both online and offline will be able to play live music together, launch data into cyberspace and trace where images on the web actually live, see how robots can see people, and get teleported to unexpected places all over the world,” explains Google on the website.

See our recent New Art Venues report for more examples of galleries experimenting with virtual exhibition formats, and a similar initiative by Tate, Gallery of Lost Art, which we recently featured in our Lifestyle & Culture coverage. – Samantha Fox
