My name is David Bouchard and dead*pixel is my online portfolio.
The project section on the left features some of my recent work, while the sketches section showcases a collection of computational doodles. For hire are projects on which I contributed as a contractor.
My work as a media artist focuses on exploring the potential of computation as a medium for expression, both in software and hardware form. While doing so, I wish to challenge the boundaries of design through multi-disciplinary projects at the intersection of art, design, social sciences and engineering. I strive to create playful pieces that encourage wonder and shed a different a light on familiar objects and places through the revelation of hidden patterns.
My areas of interest include interactive and responsive environments, displays for public spaces, artificial life and emergent behaviour, electronic arts, physical computing and electronic music controllers. I am also interested in the politics and aesthetics of Open Source and Free Software in the context of media art practice.
I currently teach at Ryerson University in the New Media program.
