DEMO7 Emilie Morin - All Voices, Nameless and Singular

June 2021

All Voices, Nameless and Singular is a dance performance in which Emilie Morin uses choreography and commercial telecommunication technologies (Skype) to construct images of herself with her own personal laptop and iPhone. The lens of the ‘conventional selfie’ acts as the conceptual framework of her performed and performative experimentations. Morin explores how a conscious embodiment of the choreographed gestures can create new relations within her dancing body, between the body and the images, and between the audience and the images.

DEMO5 Reda Alouache - Purgamondo Project

May 2021

The Purgamondo Project is an immersive archival interface to assist in the understanding of complexe universes that give body to stories . This project departs from the premise that the concept of the "Storyworld", the world where the characters of a story live (Ryan, 2013), is often neglected in favor of time, place or plot when it comes to archiving a work of literature. His research-creation project attempts to answer the following question: how can digital archives be spatialized and crossed-referenced in an immersive environment (VR) for a Storyworld-Centric experience?

DEMO2 Vanessa Mardirossian : The Culture of Color: An Ecoliteracy of Textile Design

February 2021

What are the ecological implications of textile design? This question, which guides Vanessa Mardirossian's research-creation process, allows us to reflect on a critical approach to materiality through the design of wearable biomaterials. Our second DEMO focuses on the exhibition "Culture of Color: An Ecoliteracy of Textile Design" which presents Mardirossian's tinctorial exploration. For her, documenting the process was central. This written, visual and tactile memory work allows her to refine her thinking and her production through action. In the laboratory, experimental trial and error is part of her methodology.
