Stéphane Masson / Les Machines à Images


A master in the art of subverting everyday objects, Stéphane Masson draws inspiration from the street arts company Royal de Luxe and the video artist and stage designer Pierrick Sorrin. His “use of video tricks to bring out the best in objects” fulfils his deep-down desire to add a touch of eccentricity and magic to our mundane lives. Hailing from Toulouse, he has been a regular participant in the Festival of Lights since 2010. He has showcased his artworks - Voiture Aquarium, Super(s) Box(s) and Lampadaire à bisous - in China, the UK and the UAE.  Stéphane Masson belongs to the La Trame collective which has been combining the talents of audio-visual and film experts since 1990. Creation is their raison d’être, but they are also keen to promote and educate people in visual images.
