"Through video artworks, I ruminate both on the notions of temporality and duality of digital arts - the interplay of the sound and the image - to build new realities to the world around us." J.-M. Rolland
Jean-Michel Rolland (1972) is a multifaceted French artist who originally worked with music and painting. He later decided to join his two passions (sound and image) into one medium, and since 2010 he has been creating digital art with a focus on experimental videos, reproduction art, audiovisual performances, interactive installations, and VJ-ing. Sound and image are equally important elements in the process of shaping new forms of reality.
