I'm a research designer and researcher working inside and outside academia with scientists (anthropologists, sociologists, historians, biologists, geographers or ethologists), artists, public organizations, grassroots movements or performers on their investigations, action research or inquiry-based projects.

In collaborative research contexts, my energies support the ecology of practices, continuous reformulation of research questions, reflexivity, collective dynamics, situated heuristics, instrumentation, documentation, issues translation or public making.

Since 2020, being a PhD candidate in anthropology in between LESC, Critical MediaLab, and Sciences Po's Médialab, I observe long term and hybrid body-based collective research practices as part of SNSF funded project Ground Test.

Trained as an interaction and information designer (Pôle Supérieur de Design Villefontaine & HEAR Strasbourg), political arts (SPEAP), I have been a practice-based researcher in art and design (EnsadLab / Reflective interaction).

  1. g-u-i collaborates with cultural and public institutions, working groups, artists, researchers and carries out research initiatives to support and care the relationship between documents, instruments, information, collective dynamics, situated practices, organisations, disciplinary fields, ways of knowing, environments, or publics through graphic, interactive, editorial, performative, in situ, methodological or research design practice.

  2. excellando collective turns cinema and the writing of stories into performative art. Their explorations lead them to connect a butō dancer and micro-algae, follow a rhythmic gymnastics club at the French Championship, make a collection of tie and dye t-shirts, tell the story of a square of artificial turf, play portable synthesizers in forests, screen cockfights and a bleeding tree on top of a sand cascade, turn a car into a potter kiln, or document the flooding of a floating university. Each attempt to investigate a new situation calls for new modes of narration and hybrid visual representations that recompose the steps of making documentary films (writing, filming, editing, projections, etc.) to involve broader collectives.

  3. The Lighthouse company, settled between theatre and research, is staging present issues via collective inquiry and archive exploration. The creation process includes collaborative fieldworks, discourse analysis, dramatization, and academic research that allows new narratives for public making. The assembly of dreams (2016-18) portraits cities (Nanterre, Rome, Cairo and New York) by collecting, transcribing and staging night dreams stories. Matters (2018) is a polyphonic assemblage giving form and body to the archives of the inaugural meeting of the Anthropocene Working Group. MississipiS (2021) narrates a canoe journey taken by a group of Europeans of artists and scientists exploring the impacts of human activities on the Mississippi River.

  4. Quarante-sept deux is an association and a creative space localized in Cosne-sur-Loire (France) that fosters encounters between local and visiting practices. Whether outdoors or indoors, activists, artists, researchers, filmmakers, citizens, ceramists, cooks, residents, musicians, performers, somatonauts, writers, elected officials or students invent spaces of experimentation that unfold in everyday life.

  5. Stadterweitern questions how to practice city making through immaterial and embodied practices. The project focuses on concrete aesthetic and choreographic practices. Applied to urban space, the aim unfolds spaces of possibility for the city's life, for thinking about and designing the city.

  6. The Laboratory of Ethnology and Comparative Sociology (LESC) is a joint research unit between CNRS and the University of Paris Nanterre (UMR 7186).

  7. The Critical MediaLab (CML) is a community, a space and a platform for research and practice at the intersections of design, media, art and technology, situated in Basel (CH). We combine perspectives and methods of history, anthropology, sociology, media studies, cultural studies and political science.

  8. Sciences Po's médialab is an interdisciplinary research laboratory comprised of sociologists, engineers and designers, conducts thematic and methodological research to investigate the role of digital technology in our societies.

  9. The communication design department of ENSAD Nancy transmits and develops an art of the information through a large spectrum of practices and mediums.

  10. dcfvg (forms a "w" on any keyboard) is home to hybrids apparatus for archive exploration, visual experimentation, online-offline participation, documentation or performance.
