Briand’s work is situated somewhere between perceptive reality and a displacement of the imagination. He uses sound, physical forms, sensory environments and mixed media to create diverse and highly innovative artworks that invite the spectator into new zones of spatial and temporal perceptions.
In a unique experience at the National Design Centre Singapore, Briand blurs the lines between androids and humans, inviting us on a thought-provoking journey with the A-droyx – his very own child-like humanoid creation.
For his first presence in Singapore, Briand recreates his studio/laboratory where visitors can follow and interact with him as he puts A-droyx together – from the design stage, to 3D modeling and electronic assembling – leaving everyone to ponder on the limitless possibilities of the future.
