Cove Park is pleased to be associated with Cryptic again this year and to host a number of artists working with the company in 2018.

The Quebec-based digital artist Mathieu Le Sourd (Maotik) will be based at Cove Park for one month. During this residency he will continue his research about generative design and focus on sound design.

Le Sourd focuses his work on the creation of immersive multimedia environments and generative visuals. His work has recently been presented in various festivals around the world, such as Mutek Festival (Montreal, Mexico city, Barcelona and Tokyo), Live Cinema in Rio, the Plums Festival in Moscow, Signal Festival in Praga, the British Film Institute in London and ARS Electronica in Linz.

As lead of Moment Factory’s interactive team in 2011, Le Sourd produced large scale projects such as the multimedia experience in the new terminal at the Los Angeles airport as well as the visuals for Nine Inch Nails world tour. in 2013, he produced the critically-acclaimed immersive multimedia performance DROMOS, which was presented at the SATosphere in Montreal as part of the Mutek festival.

Always in search of new challenges, Le Sourd designs his own visual tools by generating animations from algorithms and creating 3D worlds to transform perceptions of space. He collaborates with musicians, sound artists and scientists in order to continue his research into the relationship between art, science and technology.
