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 work has been exhibited in various group shows and seminaries (Deutsches Museum, Stephen Lawrence Gallery, Copernicus Center, Galerie Joseph, ENS Paris-Saclay, Espace Niemeyer, MakeFaire Sardinia) and research presented in top-tier venue (NeurIPS, ICML, CHI). As part of Dassault Systèmes Residency, she is currently developing a series of brain-computer interfaces exploring symbiotic neuro-imaginaries between human and AI.
