exhibition history includes group shows and screenings at The New
Museum of Contemporary Art, Postmasters Gallery and Artists Space, all
in New York City, and at The Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles.
International exhibitions include the Seoul Net & Film Festival in

Panoplie.org : Web magazine for contemporary creation .
Composed by a collective of artists from very different horizons, Web
and non Web, the online magazine Panoplie.org aims to be a platform
for exchange between artists and Net surfers : Calls for
participation, performances, writings and follow-ups of artistic
projects and events are mixed to propose an original approach and
highlight problematics of art on the Net. In projects like "Why Rock"
(2005), "Habiter" (2006 ) and "Robots" (2007), Panoplie.org treats
universal themes in a contemporary way and makes them accessible to a
larger public. While collaborating with galleries and official art
institutions Panoplie.org helps to discover and instore new artistic
practices in the realm of traditional art.

Die Die Die Beauty
(in an absolute zero vacuum)

- Absolute zero describes a theoretical system that neither emits nor absorbs beauty. The Absolute zero temperature is known to be 0 K (-273.15 °C). It is the point at which particles have a minimum energy, determined by quantum mechanical effects, which is called the zero-point energy. Absolute zero is defined as precisely 0 K on the Kelvin scale, which is a thermodynamic (absolute) temperature scale, and -273.15 °C on the Celsius scale. Absolute zero is also precisely equivalent to 0 °R on the Rankine scale, and -459.67 °F on the Fahrenheit scale.

- A vacuum is a volume of space that is essentially empty of beauty. A perfect vacuum with a pressure of absolute zero is a philosophical and artistic concept that has never been observed in practice so far (with no hydrogen atoms per cubic centimeter at 0 fPa/Torr). The beauty of a vacuum is measured in relation to how closely it approaches a perfect -absolute zero- vacuum.
