Motion/graphic designer, audiovisual artist and vj. Based in Montreal. Approach based on personal digital experimentation, aiming a strong/sensitive aesthetic. Creations presented in Montréal, Bruxelles, Beijing and Paris. Vjing presented at Igloofest and Mutek, Montreal. Composes for theater and working with contemporary dance. BA in electroacoustic composition, University of Montreal, 2013.
Conceptualized under strong themes, the creation of my vj set / audiovisual works is preceded by research, music listening, and experimentation/exploration of digital possibilities in a personal way. Technology, in that sense, is a tool for imagination, and it’s not defining the work itself. Although my approach interferes in a formalistic thinking, my latest creations present provocative visual by a dichotomous dialogue between reality and digital manipulation. My graphics interventions, connected to sound, aiming a manipulation of data as the core of the work, in order to exceed a purely abstract aesthetic. Active collaborator in the field of contemporary dance in Montreal, I see dance as the physical incarnation of the video: visual dancing, defying conventions, in intimate and free relationship with the sound. Visual rhythm, choreographer of light.

Thank you all for following First Friday a la Web! You guys are all art stars as far as I’m concerned. Love you, darlings!
What? First Friday a la Web is an online gathering of artists from anywhere. That means YOU can submit your work to be featured in the online gallery. The gallery itself is a TUMBLR blog, and each first Friday of every month, I want to showcase between 5 to 10 artists. Each artist is responsible for giving me enough information about themselves, their work and contact info if a visitor likes what you do and wants to commission you.
Where? The URL is http://firstfridayalaweb.tumblr.com/ You can follow it through your own tumblr, if you have one. You can sign up for a blog for free!
When? Every First Friday, all day.
What does it cost? NOTHING! It is free.
What to send: Copy, paste, fill it out and email THE FORM (below) back to me at email@example.com.
Am I guaranteed a spot? The point of the blog is to showcase working artists who are original, new and risk-taking. If I don’t think it’s ready to be shown, I’ll tell you why and how you can get me to change my mind.
What do you accept? Sculpture, fashion, digital art, illustration, graphic design, textiles, architecture, paintings, drawings, mixed media, photography, printmaking, encaustic, etc…
Can I submit sketches? No. You may only submit finished work.
Quick note: In order to be considered, YOU MUST FILL OUT AND SEND THE FORM. I will not post the art of anyone who has not done this. I will email each sender ONLY ONCE to remind them, and after that, I will not hound anyone.
CUT AND PASTE THIS FORM INTO AN EMAIL, FILL OUT AND SEND TO ME. DOUBLE CHECK YOUR SPELLING. WHAT YOU WRITE GOES ONLINE. EMAIL IT TO ME AT firstname.lastname@example.org
Bio: This is not your life’s story. This can be two sentences or one page, and is about you, where you make your work, went to school, etc…
Artist Statement: This should be no longer than two pages, no less than a paragraph. Tell us why you make your work. Is it political? Meant to be confuse? Satirical? Why is the work relevant to you and the world?

Four Tags: Tags are used on Tumblr.com to find posts easily. That said, tumblr only uses the first five tags per post, so make them good. Each post will have the tag #firstfridayalaweb, so that gives you four more. I suggest your name, tumblr username, and anything that would be most logically searchable (#mixed media; #surreal art, etc…)
Between 10 and 20 examples of your work. These MUST be sent as attachments. I will not accept Dropbox or other forms of filesharing. Attachments only, please.
If you are unsure of what to write for any of these, visit the blog! We have tons of great artists already up, and you can see what they’ve written to help you understand your bio and statement.
FFalaW is running a little late this month. In addition to working two jobs, I am also without internet access for the past several days. Hopefully this will be fixed by next week. In the meantime, thank you all for your support.
If you want to have your work shown, please visit the Guidelines and the Form. I’m currently accepting submissions for April.
Thank you all for following my dorky blog! It feels great to help artists get exposure, and I want to keep the momentum going! I’m taking submissions for the March 2014 post, so read The Guidelines on my blog, fill out The Form, and then email your best work to me at email@example.com. Thanks again, lovies! <3
