1. Plasmosis is a site-specific, underwater, artificial life installation. It was installed at the marina of Carleton-sur-Mer (Quebec, Canada) during the Summer 2013. An artificial entity, it interacts in the aquatic environment through multiple sensors, adapting over time to the different natural movements that surround it. The work is thus as a passageway between two worlds: that of air, and that of water. Situated at the point of phase change between liquid and gas, it allows the visitor to exist for a time between these two worlds, to assess their shape, density, temporality and limits. It raises questions about our relationship to the maritime area and its ecosystems.

  2. « Son cri rappelle le bruit d’une goutte d’eau tombant sur une surface métallique très chaude. »
    Cette installation sonore extérieure s’inscrit dans une recherche autour du langage, de la voix et de la traduction, intégrant entre autres un travail poétique sur les chants d’oiseaux.

    Présentée à la Virée des ateliers 2013 dans le jardin de La Chaufferie/Coopérative Lezarts

    Aquatic robotic installation

    Vessels is a robotic installation consisting of large groups of autonomous water vehicles. With roughly 50 individuals in a population, the robotic agents interact with each other and their environment to form a simple ecosystem. Their collective, emergent behaviour resembles the social interactions in a community of living creatures. Observers may empathize with the robots’ behaviours, ascribe intentions and motivations to their actions, and/or draw correlations between the group dynamic and unseen characteristics of their milieu.

  4. Absences is a series of electronic interventions in natural environments. Autonomous electronic devices are deployed within various ecosystems in the manner of ephemeral experiments. They interact with the surrounding elements through different relational strategies. Taking shape at the frontier of electronic art and environmental art, it proposes a meditation on solitude and association, natural and artificial, interaction and contemplation.

  5. Absences is a series of electronic interventions in natural environments. Autonomous electronic devices are deployed within various ecosystems in the manner of ephemeral experiments.

Taking shape at the frontier of electronic art and environmental art, it proposes a meditation on solitude and association, natural and artificial, interaction and contemplation.

    The Fifth Absence is the last intervention in the series. It was created during a two weeks residency at the Centre d'Art i Natura in the Catalonian Pyrennees (Spain), in June 2011. It is an artificial agent consisting of a line of nine garden-lamp solar cells hanging from a cliff. The agent lies in a perpetual tension between its need of solar power and its desire to avoid looking at the sun. It  gets rewarded for avoiding light and punished for running out of power. Over time, the agent learns by trials and errors what is the best course of actions in order to fulfill its inner desire to avoid light as much as possible, while trying to avoid running out of batteries (it takes several days for the agent's behavior to stabilize).  In so doing, it creates its own world of connectionist representations.
