Samuel Rousseau

Born in 1971 - France

BIOGRAPHY

Born in Marseille on 18 January 1971, Samuel Rousseau is a French contemporary artist who makes art mainly using video and computer resources. However, his means of expression vary to include sculpture, photography, installations, drawings, and digital art.

Samuel Rousseau's digital art questions humanity, the contemporary world, and mass media. Used discreetly in his work, technology is strictly at the service of a certain poetry where the virtual and the real intersect. In his fictional and often poetic video loops, everyday objects - recycled or transformed - come to life and provoke new questions.
