Antoine Schmitt scripts pixel movements in Australia

Videospread is pleased to launch Pixel Movement by French artist Antoine Schmitt. The programme will be screened on four large outdoor screens in Melbourne: Federation Square, Bunjil Place, Liverpool and Harmony Square.

Installation artist, Antoine Schmitt creates artworks in the form of objects, installations and live performances to address the processes of movement in all of their modalities. He questions their intrinsic conceptual problematic, in terms of plastic, philosophical or social nature. Heir of kinetic and cybernetic art and nourished by metaphysical science-fiction, he endlessly investigates the dynamic interactions between human nature and the nature of reality. Originally a programmer specialized in human-computer interactions and artificial intelligence, he uses computer programming – as contemporary artistic material, unique by its active quality – at the heart of his artwork to reveal and literally control the forces at stake. Antoine Schmitt has started to articulate this approach with other established artistic practices like music, dance, architecture, literature or cinema, and has thus collaborated with Franck Vigroux, Atau Tanaka, Vincent Epplay, Jean-Jacques Birgé, Delphine Doukhan, K.Danse, Patrice Belin, Don Nino, Cubenx, Alberto Sorbelli, Matthew Bourne… As theoretician, speaker and editor of the portal, Antoine Schmitt explores the field of programmed art.

Antoine Schmitt lives and works in Paris, France.
