    Jean Dubois is a professor at the School of Visual and Media Arts of the Université du Québec à Montréal. The subjects of his artistic practice and research range from digital devices, random structures, intersubjective reflections, textual imagery and in situ approaches. His creations structure themselves from the material location, from implicit significations and from the potential decay of the work of art. He is especially preoccupied with corporal and multisensual experiences which he stages through body posture, touch and breath in order to produce an amplified intimacy. He also addresses art in the public sphere with media installations displaying unstable monuments of random and interactive forms.


    Jean Dubois creates installations that, both poetically and critically, tackle interpersonal relationships, combinative textuality, and reflexive situations through media interfaces that incorporate the spectator’s body. He teaches at Université du Québec à Montréal’s School of Visual Arts and Media Arts (Canada). His creations have been presented in a number of countries, including Canada, Poland, China, the United States, Brazil, Japan, and Luxembourg.


    Jean Dubois is a multidisciplinary artist who began in the field of installation and urban intervention before working with new media. He is particularly interested in the poetic potential of interactive images and touch screens. In his recent artistic production, he has staged the viewer with fictional characters in situations dealing with interpersonal exchange. He holds a master’s degree in Visual Arts from Université Quebec Montreal (UQAM), Canada and diploma in Art, Aesthetics and Technology from Université Paris VIII. He currently teaches digital image processing and interactive processes at the école des arts visuels et médiatiques of UQAM.
