“Working at the intersection of art, science, and technology, Marguerite Humeau explores the mythic power of scientific narratives and their effect on a larger understanding of the world. Starting with intensive research, Humeau traverses diverse fields such as paleontology, media theory, and biology to find factual basis for her sculptural and sound-based works”. [1]

“I use scientific facts but also and more importantly speculations and fictions. I want to create strong physical, almost supernatural experiences”.[1]

In her pieces, she narrates fictional events such as the re-emergence of extinct, prehistoric creatures or otherworldly beings. Through visual and sonic relations, the London-based artist’s work deconstructs and elaborates on scientific knowledge, reorienting our understanding of the world around us.

Note to Self:

  • Her work exists in a screen environment and also untethered physical manifestations.
