James Auger and Jimmy Loizeau


James Auger (b.1970) and Jimmy Loizeau (b.1968) have been collaborating on projects since their development of the Audio Tooth Implant, conceived whilst students at the Royal College of Art in 2001. Post RCA they were employed as research associates at Media Lab Europe (The European Partner of the MIT Media Lab) where the main focus of their research was a design-based investigation into technologically mediated human communication (2002-2005). 

Their ongoing approach is to develop products and services that question and contradict the ideology of contemporary design and related conspicuous consumption of technological artefacts. 

Auger-Loizeau projects have been published and exhibited internationally, including MoMA, New York, 21_21, Tokyo, The Science Museum, London and the Ars Electronica festival, Linz and is in the permanent collection at MoMA.

James Auger is an associate professor at ENS Paris Saclay.

Jimmy Loizeau is a senior tutor Goldsmiths College, University of London.
