Ninon Lizé Masclef is a hybrid artist and scientist working in Paris, France. She develops an aesthetic of information flows : a click, a gaze, a body offered to the sensors. She retemporizes the traces captured by technological devices to give a mean of access to its real referent : the self and the Other. Her art practice unites various media like installation, performance, 3D graphics, artificial imagination and sound. She a singer and multi-instrumentalist attaching great importance in transmedia and noise experimentation. Her artwork has been exhibited in various group shows and seminaries (Stephen Lawrence Gallery, Copernicus Center, Galerie Joseph, ENS Paris-Saclay, Espace Niemeyer, MakeFaire Sardinia) and scientific research presented in top-tier venue (CHI, ISMIR). As part of Dassault Systèmes Residency, she is currently developing a series of brain-computer interfaces exploring symbiotic neuro-imaginaries between human and AI.
