Born in 1988 in Toulouse, Sophie has lived and worked in Geneva. Her work challenges traditional artistic dichotomies: organic vs. artificial and analog art vs. digital. She experiences the prism of the image; from line to movement, from small to large, from flat to volume, she plays with scales, spaces and architecture.

Her creations can take the form of drawings, photos, videos, installations, virtual reality and even ceramics. She develops an immersive and dreamlike work of her own, which she confronts and likes to tie to the work of other artists and performing arts disciplines.

A graduate of HEAD in visual communication, she explores the different layers of our aesthetic perception of the living world, collects images here and during her travels, which she then transforms into new visual experiences.

With her live / VJing screenings, Sophie has performed in many spaces and festivals such as the in Istanbul, NYC, Montreal, Sydney, in Ecuador, Berlin, Mannheim, Brussels, Paris, Lyon, Zurich…

Sophie gave talks in Boston, Melbourne, Zurich and Geneva. Currently, the visual artist gives workshops on mapping software and Vjing in several media design schools. In 2020, she joined the members of the Mapping Festival in Geneva.

In 2017, she co-founded with digital artist Fabrice Starzinskas: Telomeres, a creation studio exploring new media through natural systems.

Their first project, “APOPTOSE”, an experimental 360 ° short film for a projection dome adapted to VR. In 2017, it won the Best Short Film by Swissnex Boston and GIFF Festival. It has since been shown at Swissnex China, HeK Museum Basel and Flux Laboratory in Geneva. In 2020, they did a month’s residency at BIOTECH, the Geneva neuroscience campus.

In 2018, she joined the ATRAP collective with the mural artist Robin Kowalewsky from Berlin. ATRAP oscillates between analog and digital, combining muralism with projection mapping. In their 3rd chapter, they exhibited in Berlin, Brussels and Geneva. Their next exhibition will be in 2021 in Santiago de Chile, where Robin now resides.
