Vincent Masson was born in 1987.

After having worked as a graphic designer at Prologue Films in Los Angeles, he has been working for 6 years in the videomapping community. In parallel with this activity, he continues his artistic work by developing visual works that question the instability of contempory spaces and bodies.

He finds his sources of inspiration in science fiction, japanese animation, video game and posthuman theories ...

His work was presented at the Constellations festival in Metz, at the 10th International Biennal of Digital Art from Enghien-les-Bains, Siggraph Asia in Bangkok, the Athens Digital Art Festival, on the facade of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb, as well as the
SESI gallery of Sao paulo for the File Festival.

He recently leaded the art direction of the first live in virtual reality, “Alone Together”, of french musician Jean-Michel Jarre.
