Laurent Mignonneau's works, which are created in collaboration with Christa Sommerer are located in the intermediate field of art, science and technology. Based on simulations of artificial life, they develop creative environments for interaction and involve visitors in the work process. The confrontation of real and virtual systems demands a conscious interaction and illustrates the interaction and cooperation of both models.
