Strange, but not really foreign: that's the unsettling impression given by the design of this special stamp called "Metascape".
Using augmented reality technology, this creation, made up of elements that are both familiar and surreal, immerses us in a fantastic world shaped by artificial intelligence.

With "Destination" as its theme, this collaboration between ECAL students and Swiss Post initially gave rise to fourteen concepts created through group work. After a pre-selection of five works by a jury made up of members of ECAL, Swiss Post and the Stamp Commission, the "Metascape" project was chosen to move from imagination to reality.

A destination is basically a journey from point A to point B. But what happens during this elapsed time? The idea is to illustrate an epic with a board that would be a pawn's playground. We follow this character as he discovers an unsuspected universe through each environment he crosses, with the aim of satisfying his thirst for discovery of the world. Through the accumulation of collected memories, the character blossoms, constantly searching for his next destination. The filter allows you to move around a deconstructed game board. From one square to the next, we discover a different world in which fictional elements interact and transform.
The stamp's illustrative visual identity symbolizes the notion of travel, exchange and sharing. Both the stamp and the animation poetically illustrate the notion of travel. The bird takes us into a naïve narrative world. As it travels, it transforms to symbolize the notion of connection and exchange.
Based on the theme of destination, the idea was to explore the notion of travel, seen as a key element of data. To this end, it was decided to study the diversity of surrounding landscapes, representing their transformation during a journey.
