in Powell River, BC, Canada
Born in France, Grégoire Dupond just moved from Europe to British Columbia in Canada.
After training in Sciences, he joined Les Ateliers ENSCI in Paris in the early 90s to study Industrial Design, then London UK to design and produce hand made textiles for fashion collection prototypes. He has produced works in video / 3D illustration and animation, photography, interactive installations, and 2D / 3D recording and processing for cultural heritage and art fabrication.
A 10 years collaboration with Factum Arte in Madrid, Spain, then Bologna, Italy, opened up many ways and practical but far-reaching alternative ideas and processes.
He is exploring the problematics opened up by digital technologies, especially how meaning, aesthetics and discourses are informed by cutting edge processing, visualisation and fabrication processes.
He is working at creating contemporary narratives where physicality, science and digital media coalesce.
In the last two years, he has worked in VR content production and development, coding VR visualization software for live and recorded performances.
