(Educational Institute of Conversational Aesthetics

Web art. 3D modeling, Python programming, stereo sound for headphones.

L'Institut pédagogique d'esthétique conversationnelle (IPEC) is an independant, zero-profit research institute founded in 2020. It brings together a group of researchers who share the conviction that conversations can lead to aesthetic experiences. The institute’s work focuses on demonstrating that the socially transformative power of dialogue resides in the impressions and sensations it leaves on interlocutors, rather than in the actual content exchanged.

IPEC’s recent work is based on the development of protocols for representing group conversations, in order to carry out an extensive study of graphic compositions cataloguing all possible conversational structures.

The web based artwork as been exhibited on the virtual online gallery of À l'est de vos empires (Québec CA) from 04 September to 09 October 2020
The inaugural conference that was broadcasted live online on September 05 '2020 is still available on À l'est de vos empires' Facebook page.
