Mike Pelletier is a Canadian artist based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. His work explores the divide between digital and physical space, usually getting lost in the uncanny valley that lies between.

Pelletier’s work has been shown in exhibitions and festivals around the world. He holds a Master’s Degree from the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam. He was awarded a Prix Ars Electronica Honorary Mention in 2016 and the FILE Video Art Award in 2017.
Title: Cuento las Horas
This session is inspired by a trip to San Alberto, Uspallata Valley, Mendoza Argentina. It was a full moon night, its light made the skeletons of the horses and the stones shine and some snow hidden in the glacier.
And always the space that extends in the immensity of the valley, the water of the river, and the echoes of time.
