Milène Guermont, born in 1981 in Normandy, has diplomas in both engineering and art. She associates hi-technology with the power of poetic imagination.
Milene's work as an artist has led her to create a new generation of concrete, that bring elegance, technical innovation and a human touch to the familiar grey divider of urban space. Her Polysensual Concrete reacts to each individual's unique magnetic field by emitting dashes of bright light and soft echoes from the voices of nature, from falling rain to the electric whispers of passing clouds. This video will tell you more.
Her work has been exposed at Art Basel Miami, Art Paris, New Art Center New York, Salt Lake Art Center, National Archives of France, Cartier Foundation with the architect Claude Parent, Nuit Blanche Paris, Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature, ...
