Mike Pelletier

Posted by Fabio 7 August 2019

Mike Pelletier is a Canadian artist based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Working in mediums such as 3D animation and kinetic installation, his work bridges the divide between digital and physical space. Through differing means of technological production, his work explores the various ways in which the human body is represented in art and the social milieu. Using technologies such as motion capture, body scanning, and body tracking, his work examines classical art’s obsession with portraiture and adds to it an androgynous, posthuman, and often uncanny protohuman aesthetic.
