Humlab-X is our newest lab (the premises were taken into use in
2012) and is located in a beautiful spot just next to the Umeälven
river on the Umeå University's Arts Campus, where Bildmuseet,
the Umeå School of Architecture, the Institute of Design and the
Umeå Academy of Fine Arts are also situated. Humlab-X is located at
the heart of the campus and functions as a hub for the Arts Campus
institutions, artists, companies, international visitors and a
growing local community. The connection the main campus
institutions and the other Humlab is also vital.
If you have any questions regarding the facilities, please

Humlab-X has work-stations with Mac computers and two drawing
screens that can be borrowed. There are also places for meetings,
studies and artistic expression.
Humlab-X also features a large interactive floor measuring just
under 20 square metres. The floor screen is a high-resolution
(4,800 x 3,840 pixels), multi-touch-enabled screen and is rear

both for meetings and for individual work and in addition to study
places there are also armchairs, sofas and bean bags.
The conference room at Humlab-X has a screen wall with 16
screens and four single screens. The premises are very suitable for
Skype meetings and enacting complex materials. HX also has a
simulation studio (with a pink designer lamp) where there is
technology to support modelling and simulation of complex cultural
and physical systems. For example, research focused on
understanding the space and knowledge production with the support
of sensor technology is situated here.
The "Wetlab"electronics lab is a fully equipped electronic
workshop for experimental activities.
The Wetlab is often used for courses and workshops, most of them
at beginners level. Courses on how to repair your old gaming
devices are just one example of the courses offered. Contact Humlab
staff if you have any questions on Wetlab!
The display studio (added in 2014/2015) is an innovative
