More that ever, these two fundamental questions are central: Where Am I? Who am I?
My current projects, Ephemeral Ontologies, Apparitions, TPort, and Wien Chiaroscuro explore these questions by forming online socialisation experiences opening a conversation on the future of society as our exchanges are increasingly mediated by information technologies, the internet of things, robotics, big data and deep machine learning algorithms… This conference will present these projects, the processes they engage and the experience they ambition to offer.
From interactive portraits to immersive apparatuses, Luc Courchesne has created engaging works that have been widely exhibited and collected. He has received numerous awards, including the Grand Prix at the ICC Biennale in Tokyo (1997), the Prix Paul-Émile-Borduas (2019) and Canada’s Governor General’s Award in Media Arts (2021). A graduate of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (1974), and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1984), Courchesne was a professor at Université de Montréal, and has been associated with the Society for Art and Technology from the start. He is represented by Pierre-François Ouellette art contemporain in Montreal.
