By weaving imaginaries in the mode of biomimicry, Nh-9 is an immersive poetry experience that attempts to develop notions of interrelationships between humans and non-humans. The aim of this project is to allow to be immersed in a state of sensory modifications (and/or mutations) in order to construct interconnected landscapes by imagining a living world - made up of beings and the relationships between these beings.
The atmosphere, lunar and misty, is studded with fireflies. These fireflies are extremely mobile, at the limit of the visible. Evanescent, almost beyond the image - it is a multitude of evanescent, multi-form beings developing into a kind of entirely shifting space with an unpredictable future. These element-beings are interchangeable, declinable and infinitely modifiable.

Sandrine Deumier is a multidisciplinary artist working in the fields of performance, poetry and video art, whose work explores post-futurist themes through the development of aesthetic forms linked to digital imaginaries.
Her dual training in philosophy and the arts has given rise to a protean body of poetic work focused on the question of technological mutation and the performative place of poetry conceived through new technologies. Using the material of the word as an image and the image as a vector for the word, she develops work at the junction of the video medium and sound poetry, seeing them as sensitive devices for expressing a form of unconscious material of the self. The process of writing and the moving matter of the image then function in an underlying reflux of meanings that refer to the vacillation of reality and its transfers of reality via unconscious thought structures. His work consists mainly of poetic texts, video-poems, multimedia installations and audiovisual poetic performances in collaboration with composers.
