Intermedia Master’s student at Concordia University in Montreal, Laure Plan is a digital artist who mainly creates interactive installations.
After 12 years of amateur contemporary dance, her relationship with the body and movement has influenced her artistic work towards a walking practice in the urban space, from wandering to random displacements, and has divided her research into 2 axes.
The first is based on the body trace, the movement retranscription, its writing, its documentation (new types of maps, choreographic scores, etc).
The second focuses on traces made without knowledge. Our movements are constantly tracked and located via GPS then analyzed by algorithms in order to anticipate our behaviour. What happens when technology fails or has no signal? What does it mean to be “here”?
