Projects 2022 — 2015

  • Capture of the text opened in Libreoffice, in the chapter Watch me if you can, and in which we see a close-up of Sailor Moon's eyes during her transformation

    Full title: Body Recoding, de l'injonction au réenchantement des corps sexisés. Corps, Style, Mouvement

    A text on the body and its transformation as a vector of power, based on an analysis of the Japanese anime Sailor Moon created by Naoko Takeuchi in 1992, and cyberfeminist references. The reappropriation of their bodies and its representations by gendered people through technology, hacking, artistic expression, fiction or games become substitutes to the magical powers of sailors.

    The text has been versioned with git and imported on Gitlab in order to allow its amendment and access at different states of writing. It is also accessible from a Nextcloud directory, in its entirety (body-text) and sectioned into parts (member-text) referring to various body parts focused during Usagi Tsukino's transformation into Sailor Moon.

  • Screenshot of an online cyberhut (here the image of a jungle landscape previously explored textually through a screen reader).

    Collection of experimental web pages as part of a personal research project. Each page is designed like a hut and left in a raw, unsophisticated state. The experimentation, which is above all graphic, formal, exploits content that is sometimes meta (approaching the demo, playing with web notions and HTML elements such as buttons, tables, lists, etc.), sometimes narrative, in the order of the story, like Strasbourg ‹—› Dakar or HTML Adventures. Strasbourg, 2020.

    Cyberhuts aim to enhance the creative process, and are sometimes the subject of collaborative work. The persons credited can be found in the corresponding pages.

  • Capture of a text tree on the En françaiS au pluriel website

    Graphic design of the research tool En françaiS au pluriel by linguistics researcher Myriam Suchet, which questions the immutability of (living) languages, in particular French, in collaboration with Nicolas Chesnais for the collective Figures Libres, 2021.

    The website contains a large collection of literary texts carefully selected and analyzed by Myriam Suchet, which testify to the plurality of the French language, and demonstrate with evidence that the "s" in en français is a plural mark. This library can be browsed via three different display modes (tree-like, random and alphabetical) and the contents can also be filtered by tags or degrees of foreignness. Designed as nodes, the starting texts unfold constellations of writings and references whose links can be visualised and which can be read opposite each other. The platform also devotes a section to unlearning kits, intended to support and deconstruct the learning of French, as well as a virtual gallery where you can discover digital creations that resonate with the corpus of online texts.

  • Home page of the Ferme du Haut Mont website

    Visual identity of La Ferme du Haut Mont, a market garden production site in the Vosges whose activity is the cultivation and sale of fruits and vegetables from peasant seeds and farming techniques. In collaboration with Nicolas Chesnais, 2022.

    Creation of multiple communication supports: logotype, business card, flyer to announce the opening, signage, visuals for social networks and website. The identity plays with the shape and counter-shape of the mountains, and isolates three of them in the logo to refer to the origin of the name Trémonzey which is the commune where the farm is located and which means “Between three mountains”. The aesthetic line is intended to be simple and radical to reflect the world and reality of this human-sized family farm, with the choice of this forest green as the only colour to highlight the forest biome that surrounds it.

  • Generic visual for the Network & Magic game

    Graphic contribution to Network & Magic, a role-playing game to understand the basics of how the Internet works, 2022.

    Charting, printing and shaping of the different elements of the game: generic visual, name tags and cards for the roles, postcards, stamps…

  • Sonya's website v1 homepage

    Graphic design of the logotype of Sonya, a listening space dedicated to audio storytelling. Sonya is also a sound creation and production studio based in Strasbourg.
    Graphic design and development of Sonya's website (v.1 of the web platform) in collaboration with Audrey Meyer.
    Strasbourg, 2021.

    The visual identity shows the deployment of a graphic universe, like the baseline which promises "a world of audio storytelling". Thus the logo has an evolving and entropic character, it comes alive and transforms itself according to the media and themes.
    The sign, sound and colour are preferred to the visual and are enough to define ambiences, which can already be experienced on the showcase website, particularly by switching between day and night modes. Similarly, the sound portraits allow the Sonya team to be heard rather than seen.

  • View of the Plage blanche platform interface

    Graphic design and development of Plage blanche, a web platform inviting people to occupy the space-time of one minute with the medium of sound. It is possible to publish, listen to or search for audio content. A proposal by Marine Froeliger, 2021.

    The economy of means is, in Plage blanche, an aesthetic bias. Constraint acts as a creative motor and the design is exposed to an awareness.
    This type of design approach renews the imagination.
    The website's interface was designed to enhance the value of the contribution, particularly through the importance given to the form, which occupies a third of the screen and is almost omnipresent. On the other hand, there is little room for graphic enhancements, and none for images.
    The website's space is dedicated to sound, text and colour. Colour, as much as sound, characterises each published sound piece. White is the default colour of a web page (if no colour is assigned, the background will be white). So is the paper of the writing page, as long as it is blank of signs. In this sense, Plage blanche is also an invitation to colour: one leaves one's own, just as one leaves a sound imprint.
    There is also the idea of spending time. It's not necessarily a problem not to immediately understand how a website works, it depends at stakes. Plage blanche is a website to wander around.

    Listening session in Nancy with Marine Froeliger in the exhibition space of Ergastule on November 25, 2022 at 6:30 pm to discover the spectrum of Plage blanche published since its launch in 2021 and to analyze the footage of the website, like a time capsule that would be opened at a given time, to listen its content.

  • View of the projects page of Marion Caron's website in scan mode

    Graphic design and development of the website of the graphic designer Marion Caron, 2021.

    In a desire to promote her work and her relationship with book design, the website shows the books conceived by Marion Caron in the form of both photographs, in order to show their bodies and volumes, and scans, to reveal the interior and the attention given to the layout.

  • View of the Periple 2021 platform control screen

    Graphic design and development of a custom web platform for Périple 2021. A six-month travelling juggling performance across France between March and August 2021, a project initiated by Collectif Protocole. In collaboration with Nicolas Chesnais for the collective Figures Libres, as part of a call for tenders, 2021. The first four captures are the initial research thought for the project, the rest of the iconography presents the final version retained.

    A control screen from which to follow the journey of the jugglers from afar, who provide their daily GPS location as well as a succession of information relating to the weather, the speed and mode of travel or the number of juggling clubs dropped. This live dashboard was broadcast in some of the theatres and partner places along the route of the journey and chosen for performances.
    This live dashboard was broadcast in some of the theatres and partner places along the route of the journey and chosen for the performances.
    A diary is also available to read the daily reports and to access media such as images, videos or audio recordings that illustrate the encounters with the public. Each week is marked by a passing ceremony, where the handover of the juggling clubs leads to the departure of a new team, similar to the Olympic torch relay.

    In October 2021, a commission from Portugal required the translation of the whole website to make a smaller edition in the southwest of the country: A grande errância. Three weeks of juggling escapades between Faro, Sagres, Beja, Sines and Lisbon.

  • View of the Hackstub website menu in exploration mode

    Graphic design and development of the website of Hackstub, a hackerspace in Strasbourg that raises awareness of the local public to the Libre culture, Strasbourg, 2020. It is a top view representation of the hackerspace, each page corresponding to a room. These rooms are communicating, like the functioning of the association (a place to meet, share ideas, projects, knowledge, etc.).

    It is possible to navigate the website in two ways: in Accessible mode through the Menu; in Exploration mode through the Map. The user is then free to choose the navigation mode he prefers or to which he intuitively turns. The website allows the user to find the information he is looking for very quickly (anchor menu) as well as to take the time to wander from one room to another (move by clicking on the name of a neighboring page/room). The register of boxes, cells, and the mode of movement selected were attractive for their affiliation to the world of video games and for the playful dimension thus conferred on navigation.

  • Declination of the Libre-échange visual identity on a banner for social networks

    Visual identity of the contemporary art exhibition Libre-échange, from 06 to 27 March 2020 in Amiens. Creation of various formats of A1, A2, A3 posters, an A5 magazine page, an A6 flyer, a visual for social networks and a 4m20 by 2m panel. The composition varies according to the media, inviting a fresh look, and challenging the eye differently according to the bounces or collisions to follow. All of the graphic sets are displayed in the large format, just as the line weight remains constant over the course of the posters, becoming thicker or thinner as the size of the host medium increases. In collaboration with Nicolas Chesnais, Strasbourg, 2020.

    Libre-Échange is a group exhibition curated by Charlie Wellecam as part of his doctoral research in art. Its subversive title refers to a book of the same name written by Pierre Bourdieu. Through this exhibition, the curator wanted to highlight the work of students and former students from various art schools.

  • View of the LCD screen displaying the title Une matière du présent

    On the occasion of a reactivation of the exhibition Edition 1 of 149 at the Glassbox, initially online in October 2018, the piece Une matière du présent has been redesigned especially for this pop-up event, giving rise to a new collaboration with Pierre Frulloni. The idea being, for the time of a weekend, to ensure an in-depth mediation of the works with the presence of the artists, invited to meet and exchange with the public. From 11 to 13 October 2019 at the Glassbox, Paris, as part of the Grande Forme program.

    UMDP's V2 thus takes the form of a prehensible object custom-made for the specific needs of the work, a micro-computer built from scratch with minimal equipment, using recuperation, do-it-yourself, with an amateur approach. The aim is not to approach the project from the perspective of object design, but rather from the perspective of economy of means, with an educational dimension; to show the material complexity and the resources needed to run a site like this one. Manipulating the work requires patience, understanding how it works; the user must open a terminal, try out the command line following a protocol accessible on the machine, launch the site locally, etc. The user must be able to open the site with the help of a computer. The technology used - simple, free, nomadic, universal, which works a priori always and everywhere - resonates with the way Pierre Frulloni, a surveyor on his travels, worked.

    The site's interface has been deconstructed and a separation of the media has been made, inviting the viewer to stop more often and for longer than in the initial device in order to be able to consult all the documents. He is thus more solicited, more likely to interact than before. His immersion is summoned by something other than immensity, one could have imagined, for example, an imposing video projection, but it was more a matter of getting the audience “on board”, sitting in space, approaching the “back seat” of a vehicle, disposing it at an intimate moment, two or three at most, delivered to a personal experience.

  • Original visual, declined on tote bag, greeting card and stylus

    Graphic design of the internal communication of the École Supérieure d'Art et de Design in Le Havre: templates for posters, invitation cards, kakemonos. Creation of a visual declined on tote bag, stylus, paper and animated greetings card. Collaboration with Camille Trimardeau, 2018.

    By taking up the graphic charter of the establishment, the overall identity suggests the passage of time; by the scroll bars of the “scroll” in the templates, by the calendar that withers and the movement in the goodies and the greetings card.

  • Capture of the Une matiere du present website presenting a travelling including texts, sounds and images

    Graphic design and development of the website Une matière du présent, with the help of Nicolas Chesnais. In collaboration with the artist Pierre Frulloni, as part of Edition 1 of 149*, with the support of DICRéAM, 2018. The project attempts to bring into play Pierre Frulloni's thesis in art, Des outils de résistance face à la ruine dans l’errance, through a navigation system designed by Marjorie Ober.

    *The 149 is a structure that distributes and promotes digital works online, created by artists and programmers invited to work together. It was founded by Anna Hess and Sacha Beraud.
    Une matière du présent is a web page that presents itself as a travelling shot in which the user is invited to move around by means of a scroll. Audio, video and text documents are used to make the tour more enjoyable, like annexes slipped under the visitor's fingers. Thought as an open book, without binding, cut into chapters, the device allows a non-linear reading of the documents. In the form of loose-leaf pages, this disjointed exploration offers a narrative experience specific to each page update: after each refresh of the website, new images emerge. The visitor goes through the same path but does not see the same things, the story never begins or ends in the same way.

  • Sticker made for LSM 18 with the slogan “Smart things make us dumb”

    Realization of the communication of the LSM* 18: websites, posters, flyer, leaflet, programme, banners for social networks, tarpaulins, cup, t-shirt, badge, sticker, signage. In collaboration with Nicolas Chesnais, Strasbourg, 2018.

    *A week where beginners and experienced technicians meet to question, develop and promote open source digital tools in order to approach computer science and culture from another angle. Free software, music, books and licences, whether it be software, music, books or licences, claims a humanistic conception of culture where everyone would be able to use, study, modify or share a resource. Libre Software Meeting, “Digital Education: fabric of captivity or new emancipation?”, University of Strasbourg (Central Campus), from 07 to 12 July 2018. Event organised by the alsace.netlib.re Federation, supported by the Hackstub association. With the support of the City and University of Strasbourg, the FSFE, the Shadok, the Médiathèque André Malraux and the @ppli.

    The visual identity explores the idea of making visible what is usually hidden. It follows an experimental and pedagogical logic. The information is translated by different layers of computer abstraction, from low-level language to the graphic interface.Depending on the media, the public perceives sometimes the text in “plain text” and sometimes the “source” (code, programming or software layer).

  • Back view of the booklet cover for the TR~S project

    Design of a graphic charter and a booklet for the audiovisual signage project TR~S, for trams and high service level buses. Project led by sound designer Coralie Diatkine. In collaboration with Camille Trimardeau, 2017.

    The identity of the open outline refers in its variations (continuous, discontinuous line, etc.) to the multimodality of transport and territories: from plane to boat, from boat to train, etc.

    *Exceptions: exhibitions Background, Sublime Eroding and Peindre n’est-ce pas teindre ?, Fête de la Musique 2014, Témoin – Witness short stories competition (winning poster, 2013. ESADHaR, University of Le Havre, La Galerne bookstore).

    Installation: DNSEP hanging (ESADHaR), June 2016. Cables, pliers, nails. Posters ballad that offers two types of “trips”; a circulation in space and a circulation of the eye (stray gaze within the poster). The viewer can thus view the visuals both in an overall view and in a frontal view, as he or she moves.

  • View of the pieces from the Cascades series that coexist in the exhibition

    Group exhibition organized by the Réseau RN13bis — art contemporain en Normandie, from May 10 to June 30, 2017, Galerie Duchamp (Yvetot).

    Works on display: extracts from the Cascades serie (cyanotype, inkjet printing on canvas, four-pass silkscreen printing simulating four-colour process, embossing), June 2016. Acquisition of cyanotype n°1 by the ESADHaR art library on this occasion.

  • Capture of the main page of the website showing a cascade of images

    Graphic design and development of Horstaxe's website (Ludovic Bail and Hugo Feist), Strasbourg, 2017.

    The website tries to stage the studio's artistic approach, where graphic design is often revealed in its truest nature: the ephemeral, evanescent state (free display, stealth exhibitions). The images fall like the leaves of a tree, resonating with the brevity of the existence of the graphic support, before being stored in the corresponding project folders.

    Article written as part of Super Image #2 (exhibition and poster sale organized by the Horstaxe studio) at CEAAC – Art Center (Strasbourg), from 03 December 2016 to 19 February 2017. Text published on the E-D-G-A-R website (Expose Graphic Design, Proceedings and Research) in April 2017.

    Based on Super Image's analysis, the challenge is to observe, at certain points and through the prism of a glance, the place of the image first of all in graphic design, and, in the form of an opening, the one it occupies in the public space (as a graphic design image)

    Exhibition of ESADHaR graduates (class of 2016) which brings together the Rouen and Le Havre campuses, from 11 November to 03 December 2016, École Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture de Normandie (Darnétal).

    Exhibits on display: excerpts from the Cascades series (silkscreen printings on plexiglass mounted on filtered rods, cyanotype, laser engravings on various materials), June 2016. The scenography, thought so that the works enter in resonance, allowed the multiple appearance of my artworks in the middle of those of other artists.

  • Photograph of the installation in use by a person digging into the sand to reveal layers of images

    Interactive installation (prototype) that literally expresses the idea of digging into the web, it is a principle of navigation through images. A computer connected to the Internet allows you to enter a word into a search engine (Google), which automatically and randomly saves 15 images in the form of superposed strata, using a program developed in Processing 3. This result is then projected onto a sandbox, a Kinect captures the spectator's movements and evaluates the topography. By manipulating the sediments, analogies can be observed between the images that are created in layers of depth.

    Collaboration with Camille Trimardeau, ESADHaR, June 2016. Table, wood, sand, video projector, Kinect, computer, Internet.

    Project published in Étapes: 234 (Écoles & diplômes) magazine in November 2016 and presented in video at the Saint-Étienne Design Biennial during the exhibition Le Monde, sinon rien (The World or Nothing) from 6 April to 31 July 2022 at the Cité du Design.

  • Photograph of all the pieces in the Cascades series laid out on the floor before hanging

    Experimental project conducted in DNSEP. A creative process that traces the cycle of an image (source), such as a collection of occurrences of that image. Research laboratory organized in 3 phases: documentation (immersion, information) / experiments (techniques and plastics) / installation (space setting and connections between the parts, ~curating). This project affirms the (purely) medial existence of the image, it raises the question of the multiplicity of its appearances, and of our inability to anticipate them (all), it is a major concern for web designers for example, facing the possibilities of the responsive.

    Apart from the question of support, there is still the technique that comes into play. The liquidity of the image, this waterfall, captured in its reality, captured in its environment, seemed obvious for some transpositions: aqueous techniques such as silkscreen printing, the fluidity of the digital, etc. This “spinning” context allowed me to “follow” this image as it crossed mediums, and to observe its changes of state from paper to screen, each movement offering it its own materiality and different plastic potential. This “vertical” exploration, which brings the gaze into the image, (re)defines our relationship to technical reproducibility (Walter Benjamin says) and pictorial creation, from printing to display. It is a letting go, decompartmentalizing from the computer's straitjacket that can sometimes lock us into a certain aesthetic, a systematism.

    The installation, which was initially intended to be a kind of flattening, an assumed display, revealing the relief by the objects themselves, without hierarchy, and recalling the restitution of archaeological excavations, finally became a living installation, establishing poetic and/or philosophical connections, rather than a scientific inventory. Installation (hanging of DNSEP), ESADHaR (Photo studio), June 2016.

  • Photograph of the printed master thesis

    After defining a field of action in the vast domain of image thanks to the master thesis, I wanted to build my diploma project (DNSEP) around a promise: to propose “image experiments”. I conceive my projects as tools that deal with different travel modes/accesses to the image. Basically, I’m interested in what images summon when they are composed together, when they are adjoining (and thus can have many different meanings). My approach to graphic design is therefore concerned with the work of editing (as understood by Aby Warburg, G. Didi-Huberman, J. Rancière and André Malraux in his Musée imaginaire, 1947) and with the questions raised by iconography.

    This master thesis, which was a trigger, functions as a reference point in the sea of images that submerges us today and where our gaze has to “slalom”. It is a reflection on the relationship that links the viewer to the image, but under the metaphor of travel and the Odyssey. The “island” dimension of this diploma, which calls for circulation, is reflected in the presentation of my work (hanging in three rooms, ESADHaR, June 2016). Printed at ESADHaR, June 2016. Format 125x180 mm, 374 pages.

    Catalogue accompanying the exhibition Science Friction by Frédéric Tacer at ESADHaR Gallery 65, as part of the Saison graphique 15. Collaboration with Camille Trimardeau and Anouk Berthelot.

    The composition work aims to establish parallels between the visuals of the covers created by Frédéric Tacer and the articles that inspired them. The notion of anticipation appears through various layout tricks such as the semi-transparency of the paper, which evokes different temporalities (past, present, future) and also induces the idea of “layers”, with reference to the printing mode (silkscreen printing) used for the covers, or the USG logo crossing the entire book. It was printed in black and white, with the exception of summary purple overprints (and the binding thread) which use the same shade as Frédéric Tacer in his generic poster for the Saison graphique. The cover is an original macule generously set aside by Yann Owens, it is decorated with a laser engraving representing the logo of the Saison graphique which runs at full speed, a reminder of the internal crossing it makes. Four other macules, all different, are slipped between the booklets, making each copy unique.
