Marie Sester

Born in 1955 - United States


Marie Sester is a French-American artist working primarily with digital technologies to create works on various supports and in a variety of formats.

Born in France, Marie Sester began his career as an architect, after having obtained a masters degree in the School of Architecture of Strasbourg (France). His interest in the design of physical structures is quickly turned to the study of ideological structures, and of the way in which the culture, politics and technology affect our perception of space, our emotions and our behavior. After many voyages, she moved to the United States in 2000.

Marie Sester has received a subsidy ""Creative Capital"" in 2002. In 2003 she obtained the mention of honor in interactive art of Ars Electronica thanks to its facilities and Web sites. In 2004 she appears on the list of Time Magazine of the "50 web sites the most cools". Its recent interactive installations have been exhibited at the Biennale of Seoul and Singapore (2008), and installed in the Glow Eindhoven, Netherlands (2009), SFMOMA, San Francisco (2010-2011), EMPAC, Troy, New York (2010-2011 ) and Z33, Hasselt, Belgium (2011).

The work of Marie Sester puts the emphasis on the notions of identity and awareness (the way we avoid or invite the attention, exercise or lose control of our personal spaces or public, and the way in which we navigate through contemporary society. By placing the individual almost always at its center, its work is based on the literal interactions with the public, which creates the meetings or the one wonders if one is wandering around in a sort of game or if we stumbled on something more sinister.
