I am an independent researcher, writer and curator trained as a philosopher. A significant part of my writings and exhibitions deals with the influence of the Internet (as a hyperobject more than as a technical tool) and advanced technologies on contemporary art and society. For the past five years, my research focus has been on crowdsourced and distributed decision-making through algorithmic and blockchain-based processes in art. More generally, I am interested in ethics and in art that interferes with the power mechanisms underpinning governance structures.
I have been a text worker (editor, translator…), the associate chief editor of the French contemporary art magazine 02 (2011-2016), a founding member of the Belleville Biennale in Paris (2010-2014), an art theory lecturer at an art and design school (2012-2014), a dogsbody at a non-profit art space and a ghostwriter for art history PhDs. In 2019, I have been awarded a research grant by the CNAP to work on the ways artists prototype democratic processes using decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs).
