BIO
I'm now living in Paris again. I used to work at Media Lab Europe (Dublin) as a reseach fellow between Sept 02 and Jan 05 (its closure). I was free-lancing in Paris before as an interaction designer for cultural projects (Hyptique, Numer, Galeries Lafayette, etc). I was returning then from Vienna where I had spent about a year working at Nofrontiere. Previously, I had been a student in interactive media (Beaux-Arts de Paris) and in history (Sorbonne). In the middle of this, I co-founded the online platform superficiel.org (http://www.superficiel.org) to support my artistic impulsions.

Passages Installation between France and Scotland


Dates:
Fri May 11, 2007 00:00 - Tue May 08, 2007

The Passages Installation developed at Media Lab Europe will be exhibited from the 9th to the 16th of May 2007 between La Maison Pop in Montreuil (France) and the Distance Lab in Forres (Scotland).
Passages is a public space installation that aims to connect intimately people in different cities. This installation presents the random passer-by with a moving and transiting experience where he/she has to engage the entire body to uncover the possibilities of a relationship with a stranger.
More info on the project: http://passages.superficiel.org

At this occasion, a conference between Joelle Bitton, artist and co-founder of Superficiel.org and Wolk Ka, artistic director of Res Publica, digital Performance art Company will take place at the Maison Pop on Friday the 11th of May at 8pm.
They will discuss the new types of relationships emerging from the mediation of technologies.

DISCUSSION

the process of creation


I'm currently trying to understand the dynamics of the community we belong to (or not). What is this community? Is it consistent? Is it fair? Do you feel you belong to it? Are you alone? Do you feel in competition? Do you feel in difficulty? Some questions that i would like to ask you. And in relation to that, what motivates your creation? What brings you to your desk in front of your computer?
