>From 2005, she is interested in machinima
<httphttp://www.isabellearvers.com/machinima-eng/> ( films made within
virtual worlds using real-time 3D engines or video games) and organizes
screenings at the Centre Pompidou, at festivals in France and abroad (Czech
Republic , Brazil, Canada) since 2009, she organizes workshops initiation
or completion of machinima , to democratize a practice that transforms an
object of mass consumption into a production tool.

In partnership with the Gamerz Festival in Aix -en- Provence, she designed
the first machinima exhibitions in art gallery and continues to work with
curatorial exhibitions of independent games, game art and retrogaming in
France with Dream Games
Games Policy <http://www.isabellearvers.com/play-again/>, Games Reflexions
and abroad with Evolution of Gaming

In 2013 she curated the antiAtlas of Borders
a touring exhibition on the borders in the 21st century that will be shown
in Berlin as part of Secession
in september 2014 and in the Art of bordering
an exhibition hosted at the MAXXI in Rome in october 2014. The next
antiatlas of borders exhibition will be held in Brussels in april 2016 with
the title: Coding and decoding the borders at the dawn of the 21st century.

She is also in charge of the End of the Map <http://lafindescartes.net/>
exhibition which was presented in Paris during the fall 2015.

Besides her curatorial work, she produces abstract landscapes machinima
http://www.isabellearvers.com/2016/01/becoming-an-artist-slowly-slowly/ and
is about to collaborate with a dancer in order to mix dance and machinima.

During her residency in Dunkerque (january/may 2016) she wants to produce
collaborative machinima with migrants and refugees about their daily lives
in the "jungle" in order to link her work with social sciences research.
