Pascale Gustin

From the visual to the audio, passing by the textual, Pascale Gustin listens in order to make the music of linguistics and code emerge. If she works to deconstruct her relationship to digital objects, it is because they seem to ask her this question: which part of the machine is human and vice versa, which is the “machine” part of the human? For her research, she primarily uses the open source graphic programming environment Pure Data + Gem. She currently teaches Pure Data at the Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallee University. She gives workshops on these tools on a regular basis in art institutions as well as at the Centre de Ressources d’Arts Sensitifs à Mains d’Oeuvres (Saint-Ouen, France).Holding a degree in Fine Arts, she has published essays in journals and magazines including JAVA, Nioques and Akenaton/dock(s). Her first book « Trajets » was published by Station Mir editions in 2006. She is also the creator of digital performances presented at events such as Piksel09 (Bergen, Norway), Hacker Space Festival (Vitry-sur-Seine, France), Vision’R (Paris, France), Visionsonic (Sèvres, France), /ETC (Amsterdam, Netherlands) and Studio XX. She currently lives and works in Paris.
