Juliette Lusven is an interdisciplinary visual artist and researcher. Her exploratory and processual approach is inspired by geosciences and perceptive and technological visualization processes in regard to terrestrial and oceanic space. She creates different forms of installations and spatial compositions that are at once sculptural, photographic and videographic. Her research questions our relationship to the world in relation to technological interconnectivity, its terrestrial materiality, flows (natural and artificial), perception and scale relationships. She is currently pursuing a PhD in art studies and practices at UQÀM where she is developing the project Exploration.135. Her research has been supported by Hexagram and deepened at the Geotop laboratory. Her work was recently exhibited at the Agora Hydro-Québec during the Nuit des idées (2020) and will soon be shown at the Elektra gallery (Montréal).
Juliette Lusven FR/QC — Sonder (le monde)
A visual installation on the bathymetric flows that connect the world. The research-creation project Exploration.135 investigates the impact of technological interconnectivity on our perception of the world in a visual installation whose body of work foregrounds relationships of scale between terrestrial space and the underwater infrastructure of the Internet. Satellite data related to the routes of underwater cables produce a luminous topographic flow that simultaneously feeds the projection of a stratified landscape and the capture of underwater rocks, microfossils, and optical fibre on the ground.
