I'm a digital artist, researcher and teacher at Paris 8 University. I teach C# programming and Shading for real-time rendering. I made games for 10 years. They were experimental, weird, anti-, classical, design, artistic, etc.
I live in Pontoise, near Paris, France.
I founded Alineaire collective with my friends. We create experimental games : www.alineaire.com
I studied visual arts (Arts plastiques) at Bordeaux 3 University and computer graphics (Arts et Technologie de l'Image) at Paris 8 University.
I have a master degree in visual arts. I'm a doctorate student and writing a thesis about sensitive experience of creators in video games.
I'm trying since 10 years to experiment the bounding of videogames. I began by creating anti-games-joke-troll like « Le Perdu » (or « The Game Over ») witch is simply a Title Screen and a game over, or « The Fastest RPG Ever« , a game about all rpg stereotypes. At the very beginning, it was just for fun. But, a lot of friends were seriously interessted by theses stuffs. So I tried to experiment deeper with autobiographical games like « The Blue Bus Lost in a Forest » (Yes, I searched a trully blue bus in a forest when i was younger) or « Public Official« . Founding the artistic game collective Alineaire was certainly the best decision of the last years. All my friends helped me to create greater games, bigger and with more money. So my journey continue with another pervasive games with artistic installation. It truly oriented my research on body sensation and the impact of emotional thinking and the place of subjectivity in game creation.
I founded Alineaire in 2013 to help me release more cool projects with my friends : Henri Morawski, Mélanie Machado, Sylvain Raudrant, Noellie Velez, Pascal Viette, Gaëlle Oliveau, Jérémie Aronowiez. We made games likeEveryday I'm Working, Duckitty, Super, DataCore. We seek to extend the definition of a videogame by experimenting its bounding. We're in pervasive games, body motion games, and art games.
