Grégoire Dupond + Projects
Born in France, Grégoire Dupond moved in 2018 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 as well as working in all aspects of a fashion design studio.
Since the late 90s he has produced works in video / 3D illustration and animation, photography, interactive installations, sculpture, and 2D / 3D recording and processing for cultural heritage and art fabrication, working with renown institutions and artists across Europe and abroad.
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, tightly intertwined with the need for new and diverse types of digital mediation.
He is exploring the problematics opened up by digital technologies, especially how meaning, aesthetics and discourses are informed by cutting edge processing, visualization and fabrication processes.
He is working at creating contemporary narratives where physicality, science, nature and digital media coalesce.
Over the last years extended reality (XR VR) has become a continuous interest with content production and development, coding VR visualization software for live and recorded performances and animations. It is now his main axis of research and work as a personal and collaborative endeavor.
