Laurent Segretier is a young, French new media artist who commutes between Hong Kong and Paris for his work and who has been exhibiting in Asia for a few years now (Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Djakarta). Laurent Segretier made the Designer's Day 2011 selection, he has also exhibited his work at l'Eclaireur and at Galerie de Valois in Paris. His photo and video creations are marked by an ambivalent use of digital tools. On one hand, he meticulously controls the parameters to create images and generate the colors, depending on the desired effects; on the other hand, Laurent Segretier lets chance have its way to trigger random distortions that become the key elements of his compositions. These images appear to be distorted and violently pixelated, creating material from this digital matter.
