Cadie Desbiens-Desmeules is a Canadian artist working between generative processes and live performance. Her work is often either site-specific or installation-based, spanning multiple surfaces or immersive environments. Sound is typically a key part of her process, translating one medium into another and exposing audiences to the visual beauty of sonic forms. Her approach idealizes computers as living collaborators, experimenting with a careful balance of chaotic computer-driven behaviours and human error.
In 2008, Desbiens-Desmeules began performing as Push 1 stop, presenting at national art galleries and international festivals like MUTEK and the Musée des Beaux-Arts du Canada. Soon, this expanded into large format works, commissioned by groups like the Societé des arts technologiques. Since 2016, her various films and live performances have been in demand worldwide, shown at festivals like Sónar (ES), TodaysArt (NL) and Gamma Festival (RU).
Desbiens-Desmeules currently lives and works in Montréal, Canada. She continues to be in demand as a visual effects artist, collaborating with top industry talent and agencies.
