Interactions between us and our environment come first. We come later. Ikse Maître relies on reality offsets to question the relationships we keep with the world around us. Sensing the outside world, processing acquired data, Ikse Maître plays mainly on site with computer-controlled video and sound adjunctions.
There is no specific media in his work as he has differently explored sand, stone, statues, wires, fabrics, human bodies, or video screens to locally shift a living reality. He also made use of medical imaging to reveal our inner depth and to augment the human reality. He worked with Cyril Vachez to abusively extrapolate general relativity onto perturbed video projections and to enhance the reciprocal effects between visitors and visited places.
Ikse Maître collaborates with scientists and developers, actors and sound designers. In 2013, Ikse Maître founded with Cyril Vachez an art and science laboratory, the neticLab, at the Orsay Scientific Center.
