Author, video artist and performer. With her dual philosophical and artistic training, Sandrine Deumier constructed a multifaceted poetry focused on the issue of technological change and the performative place of poetry conceived through new technologies. Using material from the word as image and the image as a word vector, she also works at the junction of video and sound poetry considering them as sensitive devices to express a form of unconscious material itself.

Her work consists mainly of texts, digital poetry, multimedia installations and audiovisual performances in collaboration with composers.Read More
