Robin Meier studied composition in Switzerland. Between 2001 and 2005 he took electroacoustic composition classes at the Conservatoire National de Région de Nice (National Conservatoire of the Nice Region) and at the CIRM (National Centre for Musical Creation). At the same time he was studying cognitive philosophy at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (School of Higher Studies in Social Sciences) in Paris. Today his work revolves around artificial intelligence and the man/machine relationship. In 2011 he was invited by the Palais de Tokyo along with Ali Momeni to present The tragedy of the commons. Following an invitation by Marc Olivier Wahler, he created an installation that used fireflies, bioluminescent bacteria and crickets as part of the Commission d’Art Audemars Piguet during Art Basel in June 2011.
