Dorianne Wotton

Dorianne WottonLiving on a remote way of life, I am based in Paris. I emphasize a multidisciplinary approach : digital art, photography, video, motion design, creative coding…

Swiss Army knife of image, I am interested in everything that concerns « images ».
Ever since childhood I’ve practised various means of expression and it is by chance and as a self-taught person that I started photography in 2007. I realized that it is a powerful medium which would allow me to re-create the images that are in my mind.. After that, I have been quickly interested in the production of video clips and then digital art. Then, I developed a multidisciplinary approach, in particular through generative art installations (mixing audio and visual creations). I became interested in these mediums because of the need to explore various modes of expression.
I am a co-founder and artistic director of the laboratory “L:ED (Experiments in Digital”) dedicated to digital arts. The group aims to promote the creation, promotion and distribution of multimedia artistic works. The art direction is based on multidisciplinary performances and installations. Each project tends to mix the disciplines, to highlight the tenuous nature of the borders between them for the artists and the spectators to get rich intermingling of these. Thus I get used to regularly partnering with many artists and performers (dancers, actors, musicians, etc.) to propose new performance incorporating interactive technologies.
The guideline of my work is diversion of objects and things of the purpose for which they were designed to divert preconceptions. This is hacking in the first sense. In addition, I am working on confusion, mental disorder and its manifestations.
Enthusiast for DIY, I make the most of my “digital” learning “on the job”, with guidance, advice and criticism from various professionals. I am not limited by graphics formats or by taboos. Grain, blur, textures, overprinting deformation, accidents. I make everything possible with the processes I use.
My work has been the subject of numerous exhibitions, projections and installations in France and abroad (Europe, Canada, United States, Colombia, Argentina, Australia, etc.) in recognized events or places with an international scope .
