Valentin Calame – Jean Starobinski. Relations critiques

Diploma project by Valentin Calame

Jean Starobinski. Relations critiques is a research project on the curation of digitised literary artefacts. Initiated by the Swiss National Library, it is structured around an online exhibition based on the archive of prominent critic Jean Starobinski. Through this project, I explored how to take advantage of emerging technologies to create alternative experiences for the public. Around concepts such as the “Aura” of digital artefacts, “Tangiality” and adaptive spaces, I was able to define parameters to increase cognitive gain, visitor engagement and emotional connection with digitised objects. The knowledge generated by this first exhibition will serve as a model for future iterations. In collaboration with : Apptitude SA Swiss National Library (NL)

Romain Talou – Future Heritage

Romain Talou – Future Heritage

Diploma project by Romain Talou

Future Heritage investigates how to make long-term, high-density information storage technologies more tangible. Working in the context of cultural heritage, the project allows institutions to keep their archives alive using DNA data storage for generations to come. Through a process of design research, the Future Heritage project explores how to make this synthetic DNA storage relevant for institutions today and far into the future. The resulting DNA storage object is designed to withstand environmental and societal changes over the next two thousand years. Using nano-engraving and a semiological approach, the object gives tangible hints and previews of the rich content that lies within it. In collaboration with : Claude Nobs Fondation Swiss National Library (NL)

André Andrade – Poster World

André Andrade – Poster World

Diploma project by André Andrade

Poster World is a design research project in collaboration with the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich. Through the museum’s archives of posters, one of the most extensive and important in the world, the project offers a new way of engaging the public with digitised heritage. It materialises in an interactive installation and offers automated associations of posters by combining metadata with artificial intelligence. Key visual features are isolated and graphically illustrated to make the associations explicit. The project opens perspectives on how to represent digitised heritage and how to engage the public. In collaboration with : CVLAB, Computer Vision Laboratory, at EPFL DHLAB, The Digital Humanities Laboratory, at EPFL

Margaux Charvolin – Ming Shan Digital Experience

Design Research for Digital Innovation (EPFL+ECAL Lab)

Margaux Charvolin – Ming Shan Digital Experience

Diploma project by Margaux Charvolin

“MSDE” is an immersive installation for Mind-Body-Spirit practitioners. In collaboration with the Ming Shan Taoist Centre, this research project brings together designers, data scientists and meditation experts to unite digital culture and traditional practices. The system makes use of physiological parameters in a biofeedback loop to generate an acoustic and visual landscape. The meditation environment is then generated by the inner state of all practitioners. The installation aims not only to facilitate individual practice, but also to strengthen shared meditation through collective feedback. charvolinmargaux@gmail.com http://www.charvolinmargaux.com

Yoann Douillet – Meditation Robotics

Diploma project by Yoann Douillet

“Meditation Robotics” is an EPFL+ECAL Lab research project in collaboration with EPFL’s Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience. It aims to assist meditation practices through multimodal sensorial support. It combines audio content with haptic inputs such as dynamic pressure, vibrations and temperature patterns. yoann.douillet@gmail.com https://www.yoanndouillet.com

Hélène Portier – Temps Passé, Temps Réel

Diploma project by Hélène Portier

“Temps Passé, Temps Réel” is a design research project that explores new forms of engagement with various sources through an immersive installation. Using artificial intelligence, images posted on today’s social networks awaken two centuries of world heritage. Using such technologies to combine collections has opened up new challenges related to trust and credibility. Further experiments have been conducted in order to understand public perception and to define trust parameters related to content aggregation generated by artificial intelligence. Collaboration with RTS, Institut de recherche Idiap, Musée suisse de l'appareil photographique and Confrérie des Vignerons. contact@heleneportier.com https://www.heleneportier.com
