Sam Bourgault

Sam Bourgault (Montreal) studies Computation Arts at Concordia University (2019) and has a Bachelor in Physics Engineering (2015). Embedding coding, video, sound and games, her practice involves constant back and forth between art and science and explores how technology impacts and shapes the social and individual experience one has with machines and algorithms. Contrast is used as a process and method to raise critical awareness; Control and submission, real and simulation, mass and solitude, and instructions and randomness are strategies to convey the uncanniness arising at the junction of the real and the virtual worlds.
