Patrick is a Canadian artist living in Berlin, Germany. He has created content under the form of digital animations, still graphics, short films, live audiovisual concerts and installations. With a deep interest in design, film, music, science-fiction and the contemporary arts, his works fall at the intersection of geometric abstraction, (non)-narrative cinema, and hard digital aesthetics. He is a member of the sonic research cell AUDINT.

His work has been shown in various venues and cities including London (Tate Britain, 2015), New York (The New Museum, 2010), Berlin (Transmediale, 2007), Paris (Nemo, 2006), Tokyo (WWW Shibuya, 2016), Taipei (On Site, 2012), Montreal (Elektra 2009, Centre PHI / Mutek 2015), Boston (SIGGRAPH, 2006).
