Raphaël Bastide


I am an artist and educator, based in Paris. My work is mainly relating to the digital and computer program culture. The projects I create include installations, online and offline performances, websites and custom made programs. My sculptural work takes the form of installations or instruments, focusing on making conceptual models inspired by programs, languages, and software. I researches the potential influence of digital systems on physical reality, exploring thematics such as time distortions and version-based fiction. I am also a free software enthusiast, I use free and open source code and content and distribute mine under free licences as well. I currently teach at Parsons Paris and I am part of research collectives such as PrePostPrint (experimental publishing systems), VTF (libre type foundry), ex-member of Libre Objet (open source objects).
