“I steer the creative energy of the class to help students shape and realize their vision.”
Born in Lyon, France, Francois has a Master’s degree in fine arts from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. He teaches video, editing & post-production, as well as traditional and digital photography. Francois is an artist who creates videos, photo series, video performances, and spatial projection installations. With a background in photography and painting, both film masters and painters have influenced his work. Moving across multiple disciplines to produce large scale pieces such as multi-channel video installations, he uses photography, motion, audio and visual software, to build experiential works. He collaborates with other artists skilled in various disciplines like music and sculpture to create works dealing with the allure and implications of the capitalist society. He has shown works at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, the Museum of Science Boston, the Boston Sculptors Gallery, the Boston Convention Center, Gallery XIV, Axiom gallery, The MIT Museum, Tufts University, Atlantic Works and performed at First Night Boston, Boston CyberArts and Pixilerations. Some of his video work has been featured at Beacons Lumen festival in the UK.
