Gisèle Trudel (Ælab)
Founded in 1996 by artists Stéphane Claude and Gisèle Trudel, Æ is an artist unit that invites other collaborators to participate on a regular basis. Ælab designates production projects in a more anonymous context, clearly reflecting their focus on an ecological and technological conscience rooted in the arts and sciences. Æ seeks to reintroduce the world of animal/vegetal/minerals into the electronic arts. Æ produces audiovisual essays, performances, web projects, databases, site specific installations, publications, psycho-geographic walks, and audio recordings that are listened to in the dark...
