BIO

In his works, Rondeau develops devices that explore self-representation and performance in a playful and unconventional manner. His research-creation approach reveals as much a search for simplicity in design and intuitive user experience as an interest in the complexity of computer code. Situating his research in the context of media archaeology, he seeks to reinterpret forgotten and marginalized media forms using contemporary digital tools. He is a professor at the École des arts numériques, de l'animation et du design at the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi.

Derived from Steve Mann’s research, the concept of veillance is the state of mutual scrutiny that arises between citizens and institutions constantly observing each other. In Veillance², while we contemplate the scanned images of other individuals, the installation captures our portrait, which is then added to the archive. However, due to the nature of the scanning process, the individual can evade capture through their gestures, altering their appearance over time, thereby hijacking the scanography process.
