    disnovation.org is a research collective set up in Paris, France, in 2012, whose core members include Maria Roszkowska (pl/fr), Nicolas Maigret (fr), Baruch Gottlieb (ca/de) & Jerome Saint-Clair (fr). They work at the interface between contemporary art, research and hacking, and compose tailor-made teams for each investigation together with academics, activists, engineers, and designers. More specifically their recent artistic provocations seek to empower post growth imaginaries and practices while challenging dominant techno-solutionist ideologies. Their research includes artworks, publications & curation.


    Jerome Saint-Clair aka 01010101 is a French artist, engineer and researcher, who works in the fields of art and technology since 2001. He evolves and experiments in multiple domains, such as, but not limited to: poetic computation, urban and software hacking, retail poisonning, experimental music, creative coding, media archeology,… His work, primilarily based on programming and electronics, takes as many forms as net art, generative art, interactive installations, performances, experimental music and visuals, software and objects.

    Persuaded that there is not one reality, one version, he explores the intersections between the physical and digital worlds to find their limits, breaking points, hidden facets or unexpected links. Paradigm shift, permutation, intrusion, subversion and humor are the key components of his practice, mostly influenced by Internet and pop cultures, open source and hacktivism. Through the mastership and combination of heterogeneous media and technologies, he seeks to produce new ways of expression, going straight to the point with minimal efforts and means. He uses a broad range of disciplines to keep an open eye on the world and create the conditions for unexpected encounters and serendipity to happen. Aside from his own work, he also regularly collaborates with other digital and contemporary artists, targeting different media, audiences and spaces.

    His work has been exhibited in many places such as The Museum of Moving Images, the Gaîté Lyrique, the MAC+, reFrag and Gamerz festivals.

    He is a founding member of the Graffiti Research Lab France (2011), the DEad Minitel Orchestra (2013) and the Internet of Dead Things Institute (2018). He also contributes to the Disnovation.org working group’s initiatives.
