Today Guillaume Joshua Lauzier creates multi media artworks, photos, music, installations, films and also performs. By working with sound, video, tangible and intangible technologies, he tries to create work in which different mediums reflect harmony or ”synchronization” with technology and simplified: shade, shape and color contrast with frequency, rhythm and sound effect as one, much like one subject or object in reality, when in movement or collision, creates noise. The character, shape or content of the presented artwork intends to create a reactive or responsive approach with technology.
His multi media artworks are presented with the aim not to provide an idealistic view but to identify where human to computer interaction, communication and the environment are important. The energy of a place and its emotional and spiritual vibrations are always important.
He has produced photographies of popular artists such as: Alex Bau, Albin Myers, Benoit & Sergio,Fatman Scoop, Feadz, Fedde Le Grand, Florian Meindl, Gesaffelstein, Guy Gerber, James Holden, Jeff Mills, Kavinsky, Keith Hurtigan, Len Faki, Matador, Mathias Kaden, Matthew Dear, Miss Kittin, Mustard Pimp, Oliver$, The Phat Crew, R3hab, Ramon Tapia, Robbie Rivera, Sebastien Tellier, Soul Clap,Steve Aoki, Tatana, Tommy Trash, Umek, Urban Knights, Wolf + Lamb and many others.
