About me

I am a creative thinker and maker based in London. Born and raised in Paris and moved to London in 2015 to study Fine Art at the Chelsea College of Art and Design. My practice is inspired by the impact of globalisation on contemporary cultures and future societies. I integrates installations and sculptures into architectural landscapes as triggers for interpersonal communication. I aspire to create instinctive reactions by creating emotional space and shared experiences. Producing installation work is also a way to create private autonomous zones within the public space. My ambition is to elicit debates around how we respond to our modern environments by offering alternative interaction opportunities and disrupting perception of spaces. My range of skills is very wide and diverse: event management, communication, photography and editing, set design, creative coding, art curation, graphic design as well as wood and metal workshops skills. I also have a creative vision that is associated with a proactive and can-do attitude. I am a forward thinker as well as a hard-working self-starter. My willpower allows me to work confidently under pressure independently or as a team member. Indeed, I am part of the Digital Maker Collective with whom I am developing, supporting and delivering workshops and events such as the Tate Exchange (ed. 2017/2018, Tate Modern).
