[re]capture is carried out collectively by researcher and student members of the Research Chair in Critical Practices in Materials and Materiality at Concordia University (dir. Alice Jarry) and the Biolab of Institut Milieux for arts, culture and technology (dir. Alice Jarry).


Alice Jarry is an artist-researcher and associate professor in Design & Computation Arts. She specializes in site-specific works, art-science practices and socio-environmental design related to residual materials and active biomaterials/composites for the built environment and the arts.


Brice Ammar-Khodja is an artist, graphic designer and doctoral student based in Montreal and Paris. His work examines active materials, waste materials and low technologies to explore the socio-environmental and political interconnections relating to materiality and visual information.


Jacqueline Beaumont is a transdisciplinary bio-artist, researcher and materials practitioner. Her practice focuses on queer ecology, trans-theory, material transfiguration and genetics in order to reflect on the speculative status of trans life and imagination. She is now a master's student at Concordia University's Individualized Program.


Jean-Michaël Celerier is a researcher interested in art, code, computer-assisted music and interactive performances. Having written his doctoral thesis on the theme of creating temporal media, he develops and maintains a range of open-source software used for creative programming and digital art which he exploits in various installations and works, including the ossia platform.


Matthew Halpenny is an interdisciplinary researcher and artist. His work centers around the embodied processes that underpin digital technologies through art installations and free speculative solutions that aim to improve accessibility to sustainable energy technologies such as microbial batteries (MFC).


Asa Perlman is an artist and designer promoting socially and environmentally responsible methods and practices. He works to deploy large-scale public art installations. Having developed advanced skills in electronic design, digital manufacturing techniques and programming, his practice explores the arrangement and friction between physical and digital materialities.


Philippe Vandal is studying for a master's degree in the Individualized Program at Concordia University. He is mobilized by technological, ecological and artistic concerns. His work intersects bio-inspired critical design, environmental chemistry and in situ interventions to explore the potential of small-scale devices as scientific tools and sensitive frameworks for the remediation of polluted sites.
