One Life Remains

The Parisian collective One Life Remains is exploring the properties of the video game medium since 2009. This work is a hybrid between experimental design and conceptual art. Its origin comes from a reflection on digital media and the connection between video games and artistic expression.. The resulted creations take the form of expositions in art centers, festivals and galleries. These proposals differ from the usual representations of video gaming, through the incongruity of the controllers (ephemeral gamepads), the length of a gaming session (a game meant to be played for at least 250 years), or the space allowed for the players' bodies. The association currently has four members: André Berlemont, Kévin Lesur, Brice Roy et Franck Weber.

Brice Roy  : Co-founder of the collective One Life Remains, Brice Roy is specialized in the field of artistic videogames. Among other works, he is the author of Générations, a 250 years lasting game experience, Slam of the Arcade Age, a racing game with destructible gamepads and Les Disciplines du Rectangle, a corporal game about normativity.

Kévin Lesur joined the collective in 2010. He is a versatile game programmer with a strong interest on design and arts. His approach of experimental game making lies between prototyping, crafting game controllers and building game installations.
