Jean Dubois & Ghyslain GagnonCA/QC

Jean Dubois is a professor at the School of Visual and Media Arts of the Université du Québec à Montréal. He addresses art in the public sphere with media installations displaying unstable monuments of random and interactive forms. He is especially preoccupied with corporal and multisensual experiences which he stages through body posture, touch and breath in order to produce an amplified intimacy.

Professor of electrical engineering at the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS), Ghyslain Gagnon is interested in the development and combination of advanced techniques of signal processing, microelectronics and artificial intelligence. His fields of interest are varied, as evidenced by his numerous scientific contributions.

Jean Dubois & Ghyslain Gagnon CA/QCLe circuit de Bachelard

This strange assemblage of electroacoustic light elements pays homage to the intellectual trajectory of philosopher Gaston Bachelard (1884-1962). Interweaving avant-garde notions of reason and imagination, Bachelard helped inspire a societal model profoundly marked by scientific and artistic creativity. This group work was produced as part of the 40th anniversary of Université du Québec’s École de technologie supérieure.
