Maxime Damecour is a multidisciplinary artist based in Montréal who is committed to using and promoting free software. His projects emerge from his curiosity and his creative use of various technologies, and involve leveraging human perception. After co-founding the Foulab hackerspace in 2008, he began focusing on developing art projects while completing a bachelor’s degree in Intermedia/Cyberarts at Concordia University. His practice is grounded in a holistic approach where software, hardware, transportation, and installation are all important parts of the work. His work has been featured at festivals such as the Mapping Festival (Geneva), Digital Life Romaeuropa, Biennale Némo (Paris), Piksel Festival (Bergen), and Elektra Festival (Montréal).
