    Join our Wedding Lab during DDW19!

    The Wedding lab explores alternatives for marriage in the 21st century.


    Baltan Laboratories is looking for couples who want to be part of our wedding lab during the Dutch Design Week. The wedding lab is a High Tech wedding experience developed by Baltan Laboratories together with artists Lancel/Maat. This project explores the concept of marriage in the 21st century. If you and your partner or friend, would like to be one of the first wedding lab testers, we want to hear from you! We give away 10 test-weddings for free!

    EXPERIENCE WHAT A HIGH TECH WEDDING FEELS LIKE
    The wedding lab is a temporary testing ground where love and technology converge. When kissing, the wedding couples’ brain activity is measured with EEG sensors. Two unique data patterns of the wedding kiss are materialized and 3d printed in two (wedding) rings. This is your chance to join and test with us, how it feels to marry your loved one in a High Tech ritual.

    LEGAL STATUS
    The Wedding lab playfully explores alternatives for marriage contracts and new ways to celebrate love and intimacy. This test marriage has not yet a legal status. In the future this new wedding ritual may become legal.

    EMBRACING DIVERSITY
    To do so, we want to involve people from different backgrounds and gender identities, including Lesbian, Gay, Transgender, Bisexual, Queer, Polyamorous, Pansexual and Heterosexuals to join our wedding lab. The wedding lab takes place during DDW from 24 October - 27 October 2019. Testing is only possible during DDW 2019.

    FIRST 10 COUPLES FOR FREE!
    To get the love vibe going we offer a unique opportunity! The first 10 testers will get the Brainwave wedding experience for free. Share this call via Facebook/Instagram and let us know what love means to you by using #weddinglab #weddingtest #lovetech @BaltanLaboratories @DDW. We will notify you about a free ticket!
