Frederik is an inter- and transdisciplinary artist working on the interstice of art, science and technology. Frederik De Wilde's artistic praxis situates itself on the interstice of art, science and technology exploring notions of the invisible, inaudible and intangible. Frederik is fascinated by "dark" ecologies and invisible territories and the radical shifts technology imposes on society and our "environment". He received the 2010 Ars Electronica Next Idea Award and the Best European Collaboration Award between an artist and scientist.
Stéphane Degoutin, born in 1973 in Toronto, is an artist, writer, director and researcher. His research focuses on the societal implications of infrastructure and posthumanity. The majority of his work is built in partnership with Gwenola Wagon. They wonder about places on the Internet, algorithms, urban lifestyle, work and conduct experiments on behavior. In 2006, Stéphane Degoutin published Prisoners Volunteers of the American Dream, an essay on the phenomenon of closed residential developments in the United States. In 2019, he is defending a thesis in spatial planning and urbanism entitled Société-Cloud7, under the supervision of Antoine Picon at the University of Paris-Est-Marne-la-Vallée. He teaches at the National School of Decorative Arts.
