About Michel Moyse: Michel Moyse, artist, filmmaker and teacher, is Artistic Director and Co-Founder of the Center for Digital Art in Brattleboro, Vermont. Michel has an extensive background in film and experimental art. His multi-screen video artwork has been shown in the United States and abroad. Prior to his position as Artistic Director of CDA, Michel was Sound Editor in New York City for such directors as Woody Allen, Brian De Palma, Jonathan Demme, and Peter Yates. Michel has a Masters in Art Education from New York University. After working for many years with oils, canvas, plastic and glass, Michel’s work took a decisive turn towards what he now calls ‘motionpainting’ in the mid 1980s with the advent of computers and digital technologies. The result is a series of digital artwork that explode the concept of traditional two-dimensional art through the addition of motion, sound and narrative elements. Michel lives and works in Brattleboro, Vermont.
