Lucas Morgan

Lucas is the creator of GeoPix, an LED/DMX Pixel Mapping software built in TouchDesigner.

His background is in 3D animation and rendering. He has spent many years building, texturing, and rendering 3D environments in software that includes Maya, Blender, 3ds Max, as well as composting software like Nuke and Composite. In the last five years Morgan shifted his focus to TouchDesigner, building pixel and video mapping projects both large and small for a variety of festivals including Electric Forest and Euphoria, and clients including Imaginex, BRDG, and MOD/OP Films.

His primary focus over the last three years has been around building large scale system architectures in TouchDesigner. His recent large scale projects include GeoPix 0.9, and Crescent Sun with Imaginex (on-going) and for the last year and a half, GeoPix 1.0 which was built from the ground up around a true 3D real-time workflow.

Philippe Dubost

With the help of light, video, smoke, and mirrors, Philippe Dubost has always tried to balance technical research with his creative endeavors. On top of a very rational generalist engineer education (Nantes) he has spent a lot of time working on personal projects to implement his left brain ideas. He now works on short films and installations, merging the physical and virtual world through light to create the unexpected. He continues to be inspired by the things from his childhood including, music, animation, poetry, skateboarding, and fireworks.

His personal projects have led him to great encounters. First, at MESO studio (Frankfurt) and then at Moment Factory (Montreal), where he is now dedicating his time to reach new emotions and experiences through media and technology. He is on a perpetual quest for inspiration with the help of his friends and teammates, to develop concepts and prototypes that stir his imagination.

Simon Alexander-Adams

Simon Alexander-Adams is a multimedia artist working within the intersection of music, visual art, and technology. He directs multimedia performances that connect sonic, visual, and kinetic forms, creates interactive installation art, designs new interfaces for musical expression, and produces generative animations and audiovisual works. His work has been presented at international festivals, including Electric Forest, the Ann Arbor Film Festival, and the 2018 Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture Shenzhen.

Alexander-Adams has also composed music for short films, theatrical, and dance performances, and performs regularly with the art-rock band saajtak, which has performed at Sonic Circuits (D.C.), Strange Beautiful Music (Detroit), and has shared the stage with musical artists such as Xiu Xiu, Gaelynn Lea, Vicky Chow, New Music Detroit, Laurie Amat, Alan Licht, and more. He received an MA in Media Arts in 2015 from the University of Michigan, School of Music, Theatre & Dance.

The Summit takes place on the beautiful and spacious Couer des Sciences / UQAM campus in  Montreal centre-ville very close to Place des Arts. We will be occupying several spaces in the campus, but the main entrance and registration will be in the “Chaufferie” building which will also act as the ‘lab’ or community space.  Please see attached map for access routes.
