I graduated both in Engineering and Architecture, and then got involved in the study of mechanical behaviors of materials. I was building mathematical representations of these behaviors and simulating them with computers. In my works for several SMEs I dealt with many mechanical problems, with a special interest for fluid dynamics. This discipline revealed to me how the forms of matter stem from the instability mechanisms and that the seemingly most regular equations can produce complexity. To some extent, this idea still underlies my current work. In 2004, I gave a turn to my professional life and committed into a visual research through two mediums : landscape intervention and new media installation.
In both, the spectator is invited to enter the work. For me, he is part of it. At the beginning of "is it here?", a piece that was created in 2007, the participants see the chairs on which they are seating, but those are empty. The spectator's image is only revealed when he moves, and vanishes when he keeps still. I believe that for those who make images or simply watch them, images are the meeting place for an object, which remains away, and another person which is not there yet and who might also look, a necessary and desired encounter. Through such images and the relations that they imply, might emerge some kind of ontology.
By practicing programming and using computer techniques, I am trying to reflect this questioning into virtual, yet practical experiments. Despite the many hidden processes, the interactive user of computer technology is generally lead to think that he/she has means to verify his/her own power. This apparent proof of efficiency is only a belief. I think that what should be really in effect, is the ability to project oneself there, into the situation.
My new media art works have been shown at digital art centers in France such as Le Cube, 2008 and [ars]numerica, 2007 and was nominee at FILE festival, Brazil, 2010. They were also part of several exhibitions and festivals in France, e. g. Illuminations 2010, Fêtes de la danse and Traverse Vidéo 2009.
