MMYR is the collaboration of Michael Mersereau & Yoann Resmond, acting as a non-commercial, non-profit art organization. They both come from a hybrid cultural background, working with experimental electronics and incorporating synesthetic experiences in their artwork. This artistic collaboration as MMYR produces installations that analyze and transform communication patterns and our roles as social creatures through the prism of technology.
