With the help of light, video, smoke, and mirrors, Philippe Dubost has always tried to balance technical research with his creative endeavors. On top of a very rational generalist engineer education (Nantes) he has spent a lot of time working on personal projects to implement his left brain ideas. He now works on short films and installations, merging the physical and virtual world through light to create the unexpected. He continues to be inspired by the things from his childhood including, music, animation, poetry, skateboarding, and fireworks.
His personal projects have led him to great encounters. First, at MESO studio (Frankfurt) and then at Moment Factory (Montreal), where he is now dedicating his time to reach new emotions and experiences through media and technology. He is on a perpetual quest for inspiration with the help of his friends and teammates, to develop concepts and prototypes that stir his imagination.
