Antoine Schmitt (France)

Antoine Schmitt

Artist and programmer, Antoine Schmitt invents new forms of dynamic shapes, by exploring the realm of the dynamic object and especially these so special objects that are the living beings. By abstracting and recreating the causes of behaviors, the forces behind the movements, inside algorithmically driven installations, online exhibitions and CD-Roms, he confronts the spectator to abstract “others”, which essence is perceived through their audio and visual manifestations, externalizations of their inner modes of being.

Antoine Schmitt hunts down the shape of the being deep inside human nature. Happening underneath langage and meaning, sensation is at the heart of his artworks.

His work has recently won various prizes in international festivals : First prize Net Art at medi@terra (Athens, 1999), First Prize of outdoor installations at Interférences (Public Jury, Belfort, 2000), Honorary Mention in software art at transmediale.01 (Berlin, 2001), Online Prize at the international video-dance festival (Paris, 2002).

Antoine Schmitt lives and works in Paris.
