Émilie F. Grenier wants you to forget, for an instant, where you are. Using the real world as her canvas, she weaves narrative threads with traces of augmentation to create magical spaces, instilling her work with a quiet sense of wonder.
As Creative Director at Thinkwell Studio Montréal, Émilie sets the creative vision for the studio and leads her team to create large-scale multisensory installations, in both built and natural environments. Working over the last 15 years in a range of disciplines and mediums including theatre, film, experimental digital narratives, VR, and AR — she is drawn to the possibilities that technology offers less to wow, but to produce a magical suspension of disbelief.
As a mother of two young children, she strives to create meaningful work that will last generations, whether in a glass box in a museum, or ephemerally in our memories.
