Nicolas Baier trained as a painter but soon seized the potential of digital photography to produce an equally satisfying formal vocabulary of inventions and transformations. As critic Olivier Asselin has noted, Baier uses the computer as a studio, engaging a historical dynamic that encompasses painting, analog photography and digital imaging. In this regard, Baier works within the virtual world that defines the global movement of information. His view of globalism is consistent with his approach to image making. Baier sees globalism as an undefined terrain that each person shapes to their own needs, a fictional space which he constructs through gathering and manipulating images of the world at his doorstep.
