In 2014, Art dans la Cité imagined Illuminart, an innovative device for projecting large-format interactive, immersive and multisensory digital works of art into the most intimate spaces of the hospital (rooms, treatment rooms, etc.), chosen by the user.
Customized, it is unique in that it allows huge format images to be projected, not only on the wall but also on the ceiling. The user can contemplate them, transform them, immerse themselves in them according to their mood.
It is a nomadic device, light (2kg) and very easy to install (5 min) composed of a box connected wirelessly or wifi to a tablet which hosts artistic and cultural education content created specifically for patients.
Studies carried out in 20 hospitals using Illuminart show its impact on reducing pain, stress, anxiety, isolation and more generally on the well-being of everyone in the hospital.
