In October 2015, at the Liege Web Fest, Elisabeth Meur-Poniris received the Voix De Femmes award for women creatives working in web design or transmedia storytelling. Following this award, we gave her a “carte blanche,” the first version of what would later become the Curieuse Résidence.
This is what led to Elisabeth Meur-Poniris’s launching, in 2016 alongside Voix De Femmes, a multifaceted project called Intimités Numériques, through which she sought to challenge the impacts and contributions of new technologies on our contribution to the world, others, sexuality and the body.
In autumn of 2016 her research culminated in:
The creation, production and distribution of an interactive system of loving encounters that might rub some the wrong way: The Love BOT.
A graduate of IHECS’s Master’s Program in Media Education, Elisabeth Meur-Poniris is experienced in the sectors of designing and producing documentaries and interactive content, working both as a sponsor for community organisations and as a service provider in transmedia agencies in Montreal and Brussels.
She focuses her work on digital culture and the sociology of media in a broader scope, but also on love and sexuality, which she explores through the prism of popular culture, counter-cultures and feminism.
