Hello! I am a technologist and an artisan based in Montréal (CA).

I leverage my technical skills to create visual and sonic works, installations, and sometimes performances. I concentrate on the value of craftsmanship, almost like a modernist reaction to contemporary creative technological fields.

Repurposing musical instrument components allows me to benefit from their discrete function, and opens up opportunities to create visual arts or sound art, acoustic or amplified.

Commercial technologies and projects aim to be easier to use and more entertaining. I believe it is the place of media arts to explore illogical and absurd interactions, as well as to critique the quest for technological meaning.
