Pierre is a Swiss/Peruvian London-based new media artist and interactive designer.

He uses emerging technologies and merges them with analogue tools to deliver new forms of art that respond to contemporary demands set by the post-digital era we are living in. 

Concerned with our rapidly changed and changing relationships with digital technologies and art forms, Pierre’s work is a mix between embodied media and mixed reality; between visual, haptic, auditory, and kinaesthetic media experiences, to achieve new perceptions through audiovisual experiences.

Ultimately, Pierre’s work spans installations, performances, moving images and photography.

Pierre graduated with a master’s in Digital Direction at the Royal College of Art (RCA) and is currently a lecturer in immersive media, mixed reality and motion graphics at the University of the Arts London (UAL) and Brunel University.

Pierre’s work has been exhibited in Cromwell Place (London), IKLECTIK (London), OneRoom Gallery (London), RichMix (London), Milton Court (London), Bright Festival (Leipzig), Media Art Nexus (Singapore), SomaRumor (Sao Paulo) and Munich Creative Business Week (Munich).

Format: Performance 
        20:00 minutes
‘Synchronicity Live’ is a reiteration of the film Synchronicity made during my residency at SomaRumor in 2021. It is a performance merging high technology and analogue artistic practices. It aims to seek human harmony and synchronisation through sound and movement.

The piece facilitates the meaningful coincidence of harmony, of synchronised beings, and shares the idea of humans connecting with others in order to become an elevated entity, similar to a flying swarm of bees, moving in organic unity.

Oftentimes, technology is seen as an alienating tool that disconnects us from ourselves, our surroundings and others. In Synchronicity, the technology offers a reconciled perception of how to approach body movements and sonic languages as enhanced tools for human connectedness.
Using a generative sound system to create music, 2 dancers are able to generate unique sounds with their movements within a defined space on a stage. In five acts, the 20-minute performance shows the dancers' discovery of their bodies as instruments and their synchronisation as they become one sonic trace throughout the performance.

The performance premiered during OOTFest2022 in London at RichMix.
