Education: Since obtaining a Master Degree in Architecture under the direction of Paul Virilio, Eric Vernhes has been working in film production alongside Anatole Dauman (Argos films). This has given him the opportunity to make his first forays into fictional films and documentaries. Convinced that cinema is as a global medium, he lends his hand to writing, editing, producing and sound creation for his production company Les Productions Polaires. Seeking more intuitive modes of expression than those found in conventional audio-visual media, he starting producing experimental videos and using computer tools to condense editing, image/sound processing and broadcasting into a single step. Work History: from 2008, he creates kinetic, visual and sound installation artworks whose behavior is programmed in some self-generative, interactive or hybrid logic. Eric Vernhes work tends towards a resolutely humanistic proposal. The digital process he is using are extracted from their technical background to serve a timeless discourse inspired by literature and philosophy. Teaching at the School Des Ponts et Chaussée in Paris an MA course titled :” Computational Design, Digital Manufacturing and Building Technologies “, 2016; Represented in Paris by Charlot Gallery, the work of Eric Vernhes is shown in international exhibitions, art centers and foundations.

Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fine Arts
With Paris as its extraordinarily rich cultural setting, the PCA Fine Arts Department promotes the development of artistic skills, the expression of creative processes, and an informed awareness of how art practice intersects with current visual, cultural and societal concerns.
Students gain a strong foundation in the artistic tradition via both established and new media, thus enriching their capacity for communication and expression as a whole. The curriculum balances a full investigation of traditional media: drawing, painting and sculpture, with extensive explorations in video, installation, performance, photography and digital imaging. The new focus program in the junior year allows students to choose a 2D, 3D or 4D orientation. Elective courses in other departments open students to new and different methods and processes. Interdisciplinary practice provokes students to pursue and develop individual artistic modes of inquiry.
Application of theory and criticism shape students’ ability to work and think critically and analytically. Courses in Art History and Critical Studies, critiques, debates and tutorials, and the considerable resources available in Paris, direct students to an informed exploration within both historical and contemporary art practices. Museum and gallery visits are an integral aspect of the curriculum.
