Alexandre Saunier

Alexandre is a Paris and Montreal based interdisciplinary creator and doctoral student. He specializes in physical computing technologies, through which he associates both computer and physical systems, challenges our perception of digital machines, and seeks sensible links with abstract processes.
Alexandre’s PhD project focuses on live light performance. In developing and experimenting with light instruments he explores the bidirectional relation between humans and machines. Questioning the way technology reshapes us as we create it is central to Alexandre’s work.
He holds a masters degree in sound engineering from the ENS Louis Lumière (France) and participated in research projects on interactive light systems and behavioral objects at the ENS Arts Décoratifs (France).
His artistic work has been exhibited in several French festivals and exhibitions. He also conducts workshops in various contexts, including the Conference on Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interaction ’14 in Munich.
