Crystal ɡʁiʃ (Crystalgriche) (collective)
Inspired by experimentation, Stephanie Castonguay's practice explores process as a phenomenon leaving behind a trace. Through the use of small audio circuits, elements of memory and chance are manifested in her work. Castonguay tries to grasp the essential elements of our transient technological landscape; these being the material and its properties and the physical phenomena associated with it. She has presented her work at the Biennale internationale des arts numériques, at Nuit Blanche (in Montréal and Port-au-Prince), at Eastern Bloc, and at the Montréal International New Music Festival. She has held residencies at the Perte-de-Signal centre and the villa numerique Kër Thiossane in Dakar.
