In his works, Louis-Philippe Rondeau develops devices that explore self-representation in a playful and unconventional manner. His research-creation approach reveals as much a search for simplicity of design for users, as an interest in the complexity of computer code and the execution of physical objects. While situating his research in the history of marginal photographic processes popularized in the 19th century, Rondeau’s works with digital images – unlike analog photography – do not stand for reality. His research is focused on human representation in a post-photographic context. Mainly revolved around the mirror’s modus operandi, his interactive installations compel us to reconsider the conventions employed in the mediation of bodies, specifically those regarding the representation of space and time. He is a professor at the Digital Arts, Animation and Design School of UQAC (NAD-UQAC), and his practice stems from working in the area of digital visual effects in Montreal.
