Myriam Bleau is a composer, digital artist and performer based in Montréal. Using music and sound as a point of departure, she has created gestural electronic music performances, audiovisual interfaces, installations and interactive devices that articulate sound, light, movement and symbols. Her work investigates performance, both as a codified cultural manifestation, and as an embodied (re)enactment of symbolic systems through human and non-human agencies. It has been recognized and presented internationally, in festivals such as Prix Ars Electronica (AT), Sónar (ES, HK), MUTEK (MX, CA, AR, JP), ISEA (CA, KR), Transmediale (DE) and Todays' Art (NL).
Myriam Bleau CA/QC — Unsculpt
Inspired by the writings of Donna Haraway, Manuel DeLanda and the notion of ecological mysticism, Unsculpt explores speculative architectures and ecosystems created from the assemblage of human and machine agencies. Generated with artificial intelligence, hybrid landscapes of vegetal and human constructions emerge as fragments of dreams, faded postcards from an imagined future.
