About

L’Aubaine (Laurie Bender) from Geneva, Switzerland, based in London. She started performing live visuals in while studying a master in Digital Arts in Barcelona. For over 10 years, she’s been exploring live visuals interconnected to music and sound, projections into the spacial dimension, as well as different narrative forms.

Her VJ sets (live visuals) and live mapping sets brings you on a seamless visual journey, creating composition live like a painter on her canvas. She crafted her unique style over the years, mixing self-produced content, using analogue and digital techniques, hand-drawn animations, 2D and 3D animations and motion graphics, footages. She also adds video synths to her set and also pure analogue performances.

She loves projecting out of the simple rectangular screen with multi-screens, projection mapping, and in immersive environments.

She collaborates regularly with producers, musicians, DJs and record labels, for live visuals, music videos and graphic/motion design.

She was also one of the 4 visual artists to participate to Prada Extends, event curated by Richie Hawtin at the Tate Modern, London in Nov 2021.

She collaborated with Kate Simko and London Electronic Orchestra, for an all women event at the Royal Albert Hall in March 2018.

L’Aubaine was resident at Le Zoo/Usine (Geneva) and performed in different set ups from underground raves to art festivals, events to club nights in Europe such as Art Vision (Moscow), Junction 2 Launch Day (Tobacco Dock, London), Splice festival (London), Genius Loci Weimar (DE), and been regularly vjing at Shambala festival (UK), Visual Brasil (Barcelona), Crux, etc …
