After a Bachelor's degree in Applied Arts, Design option and digital culture validated at the University of Nîmes in 2016, Gaëtan Le Coarer joined the Master's degree in Digital Creation, Hypermedia and Intelligent Spaces option at the University of Savoie Mont Blanc.
In 2018, Gaëtan Le Coarer joined the teaching team of the communication and hypermedia department of the USMB, as a teacher. He participates in various projects in partnership with the Geneva International Film Festival, or the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Chambéry.
In 2019, he is enrolled in a PhD program (Information and Communication Sciences & Art Sciences) with the thesis topic, "Graphic Novel and Mixed Reality, towards new spaces of narration". How, in the era of interaction and immersion, can we rethink, reread and interact with comic book narration in mixed reality spaces?
As part of this thesis he is developing the AN DOMHAN project. It is an XR experience, mixing virtual and augmented reality through the adaptation of an Irish Celtic legend entitled The Tragic Death of the Tuireann Children. Users with a virtual reality headset or with a smartphone and an augmented reality application embody the main characters of the legend. In a black and white, contrasting and abstract world, users are immersed in a quest involving revenge and redemption. The augmented reality user has the power to interfere with virtual reality.
He practices visual and creative research methods in his work.
