Biography

Marjorie Ober is a graphic designer, artist, and programmer.
She lives and works in Strasbourg.
Her practice includes posters, book design, writing, web and installation.
She uses exclusively free licenses and free softwares since 2018.
Attached to collaboration, she works on different projects or responds to commissions in cooperation with the Figures Libres collective and the artist, graphic designer and programmer Nicolas Chesnais, and occasionally with Camille Trimardeau within the collective Plus Plus Égal that they founded in 2014.

As part of her commissioned work, she co-directed the visual identities of the Libre-Échange exhibition, the internal communication of ESADHaR and the Libre Software Meeting 2018. She has also designed various websites for structures such as the fictional podcast platform Sonya, the juggling collective Collectif Protocole, the associative hackerspace Hackstub or the graphic design studio Horstaxe.

As part of her research work, she is interested in the means we have today to “travel” in images. She conceives these visual experiences as tools, which take the form of both printed media and digital devices. She wrote a master thesis on this subject, followed by a DNSEP diploma in graphic design & interactive medias at ESADHaR in Le Havre, which she obtained in 2016. Her main object of study and creation today is cyberfeminism, with writing and programming as her favourite modes of exploration and expression. Apart from the Cyberhuts project, writings and productions in this regard appear on her blog.

She has exhibited her work :
at the Glassbox in Paris as part of a reactivation of Edition 1 of 149 with the artwork Une matière du présent, redesigned with the artist Pierre Frulloni in October 2019 ;
at the Consigne SNCF of Le Havre as part of Une Saison graphique with an in situ installation in May 2019 ;
at the Galerie Duchamp in Yvetot as part of the group exhibition Background with pieces from the Cascades series in May 2017;
at ENSA Normandie as part of the group exhibition Take care of us with pieces from the Cascades series in November 2016.
She has also added herself to writing, producing the texts Le Tutoriel and Quelle place pour l'image de design graphique ? for the event Super Image at CEAAC - Art center in Strasbourg in 2019 and 2017. More recently, she has undertaken the writing of a series of texts listed under the title Body Recoding : de l'injonction au réenchantement du corps féminin. Corps, Style, Mouvement and accessible online.

Invested in the Hackstub, a Strasbourg hackerspace that raises awareness of the local public to the Libre culture and computer science, Marjorie has participated in the development of different formats in the popular education program of the association. More recently, she joined the cyberfeminist group Hacqueen and contributes to the animation of the collective. She counts among her interventions the participation in local discussions on data or ecology and digital culture (Musica festival) and on libre graphics softwares (Le Shadok, Libre Graphics Meeting 2020). She also co-facilitated workshops such as Cybercabanes (HTML and CSS initiation with Ada Lanerd), Dazzle (anti-surveillance make-up with Daria) or Libérons-nous du pistage (regain control over one's data and adopt alternative digital solutions with Alsace Réseau Neutre).
Outside of the associative context, she also carried out mediation with graphic design students from the Saint-Vincent-de-Paul high school and the ESADHaR in Le Havre. You can find the training courses and workshops proposed here.
