Our episode today features David St-Onge, an engineer working at the interface of visionary arts and creative science. Having participated in numerous robotic-art projects (including the Cloudharp, SAILS/Mascarillons) he talks about the opportunities and challenges of undertaking projects combining the contrasting domains of arts and science/engineering.

David St-Onge

David St-OngeDavid St-Onge is an is an ‘engineer in arts’, and works for visionary artists to give them the technological tools they need to express their talent and vision. At Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal and then at Universite Laval, he trained as a mechanical engineer (specialised in buildings’ structure) and roboticist, and also followed graduate studies in project management to acquire the necessary tools to work in such a multidisciplinary context. More recently, he chose to exclusively specialise in artistic projects involving robotics. The most prominent of his projects includes the flying cube project dubbed ‘SAILS’, which is an art/science/technology, research-stimulating platform initiated by Nicolas Reeves, director of the NXI Gestatio Laboratory at the design school UQAM in Canada, with whom David collaborates closely.
