Baudouin Saintyves is a physicist and multimedia artist at the University of Chicago, where he explores self-organization in soft materials to establish new design principles for decentralized robotics. In his performance work, he develops “immersive microscopes” with which he films, and projects live experiments with materials, visualizing hidden shapes that highlight the ambiguity of artistic and natural forms. He is joining SAIC as Scientist-in-Residence for Spring 2021 and will teach a physicist's outlook on the shapes in our visual world.
Education: PhD at Sorbonne University, Post-docs at Harvard and MIT. Art Awards: CAMIT grant (council for the art at MIT), High Concept Labs residency at MANA Contemporary, Chicago.
