“[W]e intend to convey the message that it is important for everyone to understand the need to become an informed user of technology in order to reclaim their individuality, beyond the digits and source code.”

The three of us have extremely different work backgrounds, but we share the same vision of the place of algorithms and art in our culture. These disciplines are meant to be liberating, helpful, and empowering, and must not pose any threat or risk to our civilization or to life in general. Valuing and explaining the art and the science of algorithms is a key issue in giving individuals the power to express themselves. We are working to achieve this, each one of us in our own way.


A numerical analyst and expert in algorithms, Aurélie Jean divides her time between France and the United States, and between consulting, research, and higher education. She co-founded the artificial intelligence company DPEEX, which specializes in precision medicine for breast cancer, published two books at L’Observatoire, and is a regular contributor to mainstream newspapers.


Considered one of the most talented photographers of his generation, Frédéric Monceau is a regular contributor to leading publications. His work has been showcased in Paris, Berlin, and, most recently, in Bangkok with the “Vision” exhibition. Through his work with First Access Management, he regularly follows such luminaries as singer Nicole Scherzinger or model Winnie Harlow around the world.


A makeup artist, dermapigmentologist, and facial skincare specialist, Sélina Beutler is a graduate of the Bern Academy of the Arts. With her feet firmly planted in both the fashion and medical worlds, she works for major media players (L’Officiel, GQ, Vogue, etc.) and leading brands, in Paris, London, and in a Swiss medical practice.
