Ciné-concert kino kabaret

I was accepted as a director in the kino kabaret of Geneva where my film’s
soundtrack was improvised by the band Penfield, during a ciné-concert
at l’Abri, along with many other talented up-and-coming filmmakers.

New research videos

Videos of the work going on at the sinlab on our new vimeo page.

Theater for one person

An entire play executed for only one spectator is as close as one can get to the
imaginary «Holodeck», when simulating immersive interactive narrative
environments.
In this performance, I pretend to be having dinner with the spectator, allowing
him or her to turn a wheel which modifies the status of our fictional relationship.
Work in progress presented during Les Urbaines, at Espace Arlaud, with the SINLAB,
on the theme of performance art and interactive technologies, on Nov 30-Dec 2.

Launch of the SINLAB

I have the pleasure to announce that I was accepted as a PhD student and Research Assistant in the Media x Design Laboratory at EPFL, in Lausanne, Switzerland, in the context of a revolutionary new lab between arts & sciences, called SINLAB, focusing on performance and new technologies that was launched officially on February 14th 2012, at the Manufacture, with a dance performance by Chris Ziegler called «corpus pygmalion». I made a small video improvisation on the music of Andrea Valvini and the live glitches of Benjamin Efrati during the launch party.
