Hi! I do design research, social practice, mapping, workshop protocols. I am an associate researcher at Sciences Po's médialab and an associate artist at the cultural co-operative CUESTA. On this website you will find traces, work documents and outputs related to some recent projects, in their original language (French or English) depending on where they took place. My practice consists mostly in creating live situations so it does not look too good on a website.

ALGOGLITCH

Algoglitch / How do we want to be calculated ?

This research project at Sciences Po's médialab started in 2017 as a small scale exploration with the French Digital Council before becoming a long-term set of projects involving several researchers, although it kept its initial name as an umbrella term.

It overall seeks to make sense of tensions arising in the use of algorithmic technologies since algorithms have become companions of our daily life and a household name.

Through an interdisciplinary methodology mixing social sciences and design, in particular making use of a participatory inquiry, it attempts to account for the experience of users of online services who are being calculated by algorithms, lay the foundations of an ethics of negotiation with algorithmic agencies and understand how we want to be individually and collectively calculated.

The Glitch + Workshop at Gaité Lyrique

We re-use the term glitch to name the short moment when an algorithm produces unexpected results that disrupt the expectations of the user and their hypotheses about how the algorithm works. We call upon the figure of the glitch to summon an alternative imaginary that rebalances the relation between human intelligence and artificial intelligence, and makes visible micro-operation of contestation, negotiation and critique.

At Gaité Lyrique, a series of glitches collected online was curated with users of online platforms.

Algorithmic Situations

In the wake of recent research in social sciences on the effects of algorithms on the construction of publics, we are looking to reconfigure computational technologies as participants in situations where the stake for design is the material, narrative and sensitive description of issues, not their resolution. We call algorithmic situations these reconfigurations, temporary and in constant negotiation.

In a workshop at King's College London with the Public Data Lab, the notion of algorithmic situations was introduced to researchers in social sciences to test its potential to re-describe fieldwork material.
