L’alter-monde is an immersive audiovisual project in fulldome format. As an evocation of a cybernetic garden in multiple scenes, this work contemplates a potential symbiosis between humans and a state of rediscovered nature. Through ecosophy and interspecies mutualism, it explores the possibility of identification with a mutant nature, a plant-becoming state, or the experience of infrahuman lives. In search of a biosensitivity, a non-human/hypernatural sensitivity emerges.
L’alter-monde addresses critical issues of climate change and extinction of species while immersing the viewer in a potentially transformative experience. Through imaginative worldbuilding, intricate visual ramifications, and skillful sound design, this work offers the opportunity for constructive meditation on economic degrowth and the crucial posthuman symbiosis with nature.

Myriam BLEAU is a composer, digital artist, and performer based in Montreal. Using music and sound as a point of departure, she creates gestural electronic music performances, audiovisual interfaces, installations, and interactive devices that articulate sound, light, movement, and symbols. Her works investigate performance, both as a codified cultural manifestation and as an embodied (re)enactment of symbolic systems through human and non-human agencies. They have been presented at Prix Ars Electronica (AT), Sónar (ES, HK), Mutek (MX, CA, AR, JP), ISEA (CA, KR), and Transmediale (DE).
