Marie-Pier Boucher

Marie-Pier Boucher holds a B.Sc. and a M.Sc. in Communication Sciences from the University of Montreal in Canada. Her work draws upon complex systems theory, and bio- and neurosciences in addressing architectural and spatial practices. She is currently researching the notion of a “living architecture,” that is an architecture that holds the potential to continuously reconfigure the ecology of the relations between the built environment, human and non-human entities, and their lived experiences. She collaborates as a theorist and co-editor on Adaptive Actions (Madrid Abierto, Spain, 2010; Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery, Concordia University, Montreal, Canada, 2010) as well as on BioARTCAMP (Banff Centre for the Arts, 2011). She is also a guest editor of InfleXions, an open-access journal for research-creation. Her research residencies include: Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin, Germany (2010) and SymbioticA, Center for Excellence in Biological Arts, University of Western Australia, Perth (2006). She has presented her work in multiple venues across Canada, England, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Spain and Australia. Her research is supported by the Visual Studies Initiative (Duke University) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (Canada).
