Artist statement

By allying synthetic materials and common technologies to natural elements, Diane Gougeon reproduces artificial changes of state associated to phenomenons like the transformation of water in ice, the percolation of the air through a membrane and the iridescence of the light at the origin of the rainbows. She also addresses connections between the technological universe we created the nature we stem from, notably the meditation of real and the impact of our way of life on the environment.
