OSTIGUY, Claire (1940)

After an internship at Stanford University in California, Claire Ostiguy began to integrate computer technology into sculptures, reliefs and paintings inspired by various mythical beliefs. She is interested specifically in the accelerated change in human thought due to the instrumentation of the many ways of passing on knowledge. Her favoured fields of exploration are anthropology and computer science, but her reflection is driven mainly by art history and philosophy. With the help of computers, she attempts to define formal and spatial differences of the past, present and future. Among the works that are characteristic of her approach is Techniques mixtes (1993).
