Guillaume Saur is currently an MFA candidate at Emily Carr University, whose practice explores Artificial Intelligence and the cultures of display through the repurposing of algorithms designed by multimillion-dollar companies, hereby revealing the underlying social and political biases embodied by such technologies through a generated language of images.

 

In addition to working with repurposed algorithms, he is conducting a material research in textile, sculpture, and photography in order to deconstruct and reinvent merchandising aesthetics as they relate to users’ digital costumes, avatars, and other representational artefacts, through the creation of an artist-run virtual laboratory for collecting data and image-making.

Lately, he has been exploring the public realm through a poster paper series that provide urban audiences with contemporary artwork that exposes the predominance of techno-utopian standards regarding the future of our bodily beings and raises awareness on institutionalized structures of power.
