Jean‐Michel Rolland CV

Jean-Michel Rolland is a French artist born in 1972.Ggraduated from University Paris 3, Sorbonne Nouvelle, Master’s degree in foreign literature and civilizations.A musician and a painter for a long time, he melts his two passions – sound and image – in digital art since 2010.

At the origin of each of his creations, musicality plays a role as important as image does and each one influences the other in a co-presence relationship. The result is a series of experimental videos, audiovisual performances, generative animations, interactive installations and VJ sets where sound and image are so inseparable that the one without the other would lose its meaning.

His videos have been screened in French and international video festivals such as Vidéoformes, Instants Vidéos, Directors Lounge, Traverse Vidéo, K3 International Short Film Festival, Madatac, Screengrab, DokumentART, Cologne Off and much more.

He won several prizes amongst them the most innovative work prize at Digital Graffiti (Florida, USA) in June 2012 with his work Neons Melody and features in an article dedicated to video art in Elephant Magazine n°11.
