The Digital Art”.
In 1993, Florent Aziosmanoff launched the “Atelier”, to support artists. He encouraged the creation of experimental digital art-work incorporating real time systems and artificial intelligence. Florent Aziosmanoff in his capacity of Creative Art Director, has grown the "Atelier" concept into an incubator for professional artists interested in experimenting with advanced digital technologies. The" Atelier" is now dedicated to the “Living-Art”.
