The collective somme is a collaboration between Emma Forgues, Sam Bourgault, Owen Coolidge, Matthew Halpenny and Matthew Salaciak. They began working together during their degree in Computation Arts at Concordia University, sharing similar points of view but various skills among the group. Coming from diverse backgrounds, they conjugate programming, sound, visual arts, electronics, music, physics, and biology in their collaborative art practice. Their current interests gravitate around notions of the anthropocene as their critical foundation, which involves human-technology interactions, media archeology, and digital materiality. They employ kinetic installations, interactive experiences, and speculative performances to express their thoughts and feelings vis-à-vis their technological reality.
