Born in Montreal, I am a visual/sound artist working in digital and analog media. I hold a BFA from Concordia University in Montreal, an MFA from the University of Calgary and a PhD in Digital Studies from the Bath School of Art and Design in England (Bath Spa University). My PhD thesis and art practice are focused on participation, co-creation, distributed authorship and the facilitation of co-creative artworks. I have exhibited my work in Canada, the United States, Ireland, England, Scotland, Italy and Sweden and have participated in several residencies at the Banff Center, the Banff New Media Institute and at the Ayatana Centre in Gatineau Quebec. Before the war broke out, I was accepted for a residency at IZOLYATSIA – a non-profit, non-governmental platform for cultural initiatives based in Kyiv, Ukraine.
My work has been featured In Luma Quarterly, Canadian Art, the Venice Biennale, the Shanghai Biennale and at the Tate Modern. My paper titled The Expanding Artwork was published as part of the Proceedings for the 5th Computer Art Congress at Université Paris Descartes by Europia Press. I also co-wrote an article with UK artist Fay Stevens regarding our joint project – The Language of Trees – that was published in Luma Quarterly.
An ongoing project titled Sounds from the Biome explores connections between the practices of field recording and audio, drawing, augmented reality, animation and video – while traversing themes around wilderness as creative space, embodiment in the landscape, and identity.
