L:ED (Laboratory of Experiments in Digital) is a group of artists co-founded by the picture slayer Dorianne Wotton and the soundsmith Exomène.

L: ED is working on the relationship between image, sound and space, trying to erase the line between on the one hand, the virtual and real spaces, and on the other hand, artistic media.
The group aims to promote the creation, promotion and distribution of multimedia artistic works. The art direction is based on multidisciplinary performances and installations.
Each project tends to mix the disciplines, to highlight the tenuous nature of the borders between them for the artists and the spectators to get rich intermingling of these.
Thus L:ED regularly partners with many artists and performers (dancers, actors, musicians, etc.) to propose new performance incorporating interactive technologies.
The guideline of the work in L:ED is diversion of objects and things of the purpose for which they were designed to divert preconceptions. This is hacking in the first sense.
In addition, each member of the group is working on confusion, mental disorder and its manifestations.
We live in a highly connected world where the border between the real and the virtual is becoming increasingly blurred. Our new universe is impalpable, intangible, immaterial and volatile. It is a new home for the spirit, which shatters all physical boundaries.
Virtual interferes in our fantasies, since it is carried everywhere. Without necessarily understanding all the meaning and scope, it has already earned a place in our universe beyond what our conscience would let us imagine. The word crystallizes our imagination, our dreams, our fears. It is changing and shaping our representations. It cames into our familiar landscape, willingly or unwillingly.
Based on these observations, the group has developed several performances, installations and animations mixing audio and video. These creations tend to create confusion to the senses of the audience, questionning them about their own physical and virtual entity.
