Junkyard Diving

Workshop with Philippe Malouin, Silvio Rebholz

"Form follows function" is an expression attributed to the modernist architect Louis Sullivan. It is a statement that is quite relevant to industrial design. On the other hand, form can sometimes also determine function in a process of reverse exploration. During the workshop with Philippe Malouin, students were encouraged to look for new functions inspired by forms found in a metal recycling center. In this process, random discoveries and associations were made to generate a new and surprising vocabulary of forms.

Alternative Measuring Tools

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Alternative Measuring Tools

Workshop with Manuel Krebs (NORM), Elie Fazel

Measuring, it seems, is one of the dominant concerns of modern society. We measure ourselves, our weight, our height, our temperature, from head to toe, from collar size to shoe size. We measure what is around us, from tiny to incredibly large. We measure time (from seconds to lifetimes), we measure the familiar (length, weight, volume) and the unusual (sound, radiation, voltage), we have measurement systems for everyday life and for experts. For this workshop, the students of the Bachelor Industrial Design have developed alternative measuring devices.

Higurashi book launch

Other with Milo Keller, MAP

In Summer 2019, thirteen students from the ECAL Master’s in Photography programme supervised by Milo Keller travelled to Japan to work on thirteen individual projects in collaboration with Japanese photographer Taisuke Koyama within the framework of the Tokyo Photographic Research project. The students’ artworks range from still and moving images to computer-generated photographic visuals and explore multiple facets of the Japanese megalopolis which is, once again, undergoing major transformation in preparation for the 2020 Summer Olympic Games. Some projects focus on aspects specific to the city, from the destruction of small residential houses to the construction of the gigantic Olympic Village and the conquest of new territories by the sea. Other works investigate distinctive Japanese culture such as home-cooked food, the appetite for designing humanoid robots, the blending of child and adult worlds in manga, pachinko gambling, the reinvention of ikebana and young girls as ‘rising stars.’ Finally, the works seek to visually represent more abstract concepts such as loneliness, emptiness and intimacy in a city that, due to its density, size and power, offers a challenging, fascinating and extremely stimulating complexity to the eyes of the thirteen photographers. Higurashi has been presented at Espace Commines in Paris in November 2021, inside the exhibition Automated Photography during Paris Photo.

PHOTOGRAPHY

Workshop Paolo Wood

Workshop with Paolo Wood, Sarah Koeke

It has been established that photography is a language. With all its limitations and peculiarities, but a language anyway. Photography is often a relatively poor language that constantly repeats the same nouns and verbs. In the documentary tradition, the range of subjects treated is quite limited and recurrent, and for this reason, in order to make photographs, one must learn and master this language: its vocabulary, its grammar and its history.

Jenna Callewaert – Her and I

Diploma project by Jenna Callewaert

Mention Bien. What do you do when you miss everything? How do you avoid being haunted by the place you left? A painful absence mixed with hope, nostalgia that associates past and future, like a paradox. Above all, this project is a quest: that of finding a part of myself in a country where I once lived, and whose only memories I had were of colours, smells and sensations. Throughout my journey, I sought to explore and confront these memories built on a form of absence. Between dismay and delight, I often asked myself the question of the integrity of these images. Were these memories real or pure fabrications of the mind? I thus designed this book with the aim of capturing a process of transformation where each image, composed of sepia, shadows and ochre, carries in its flesh the testimonies of the past and illustrates that nothing ever dies.

Evelyn Vonesch – Sub Rosa

Diploma project by Evelyn Vonesch

Behind the shots, behind the frames, behind the scenes, Behind the protective walls and behind the screens, There, sub rosa, well sheltered, Hides the long, smooth thread That comes out of life. A cloud-like fibrous substance that feeds the cotton seeds, That keeps them alive, traps them but never soothes them, In its sun-drenched homeland. A thread of inclination and attachment, Connecting all and pointing to all. It never flaunts its beginning or its end. Real dramas are not played out in the limelight. When the curtain falls, look behind the scenes.

Sofia Papaefthymiou – Το Ρόδι – The Pomegranate

Diploma project by Sofia Papaefthymiou

Mention Bien. Being half-Cypriot half-Swiss, I somehow felt the need to understand my relationship to the territory, borders, exile and my shared origins. Το Ρόδι–The Pomegranate is a short film that has become a tool for exploration and deconstruction, bringing the geopolitical conflicts of my country up to the level of my own conflicts. This project is also a space where I can dream freely of other places, my own island – the reflections of my desires. Unable to reach this homeland, I try to grasp what I do not have, to reproduce the sensations that I experienced there. I collect archives, I commission images. I bring my female body, which I appropriate and re-appropriate through various representations, back to its origin, to find my place and speak up again.

PRODUCT DESIGN

Maxwell Ashford – RUEI-01 - Robotically Recyclable Shoe. In collaboration with ABB.

Diploma project by Maxwell Ashford

Mention Très bien Prix BCV + Prix Eyes on Talents In standard recycling, objects arrive in industrial warehouses facilities as unknown entities, with no communication about the components. They are fed into shredders which reduce them to a mixture of materials that are then painstakingly sorted. Coatings, glues, colours and other aspects mean that pure material fractions are near impossible to extract. The RUEI-01 shoe concept was designed to be recycled by a robot and contains all the information pertaining to itself in a digital form. This allows robots to “un-manufacture” the shoe, disassembling and separating materials with all data provided, even colour codes and original sources of materials. Existing recyclable shoes focus on mono-materialising. RUEI-01 evaluates the potential for multi-material durability and performance, with recycling by automation.

Water Marble is a collection of low-tech toys, free from environmentally harmful elements (plastic, batteries, etc.) and prescriptive gender roles. The toys are made from densely moulded paper with a plant-based super-hydrophobic finish and can be enjoyed by simply adding a drop of water. On the water-repellent surface, drops of water roll around like marbles. By simply using water and gravity, children can develop their sense of balance.

Ines Maestre – I Know How Soft Your Body Is I Scratched My Hands With It

FINE ARTS

Ines Maestre – I Know How Soft Your Body Is I Scratched My Hands With It

Diploma project by Ines Maestre

Mention Très bien Desire is the engine that drives human life. Desire takes us out of ourselves, makes us dream, makes us excessive, leads us astray. It makes us live in improvisation, disorder and craving, which are the highest expressions of freedom taken to their paroxysm. Desire vindicates life, pleasure, self-realisation and freedom. The work highlights a duality of what is considered good or bad in parallel with the idea of love and desire, since both can coexist but do not seek the same thing. By playing with oppositions between different materials and forms that function as metaphors, the work highlights the price we must pay when the object we desire may not be the best for us, even if it satisfies our appetite.

Ming Sum Kwan – E-Wheelchair Trolley

Diploma project by Ming Sum Kwan

With the world’s aging population and the increasing number of travellers, wheelchair services at airports will become more demanding and intensive in the future, which could require assistance providers to increase their manpower. Thanks to its electric-powered wheels, the E-Wheelchair Trolley reduces airport attendants’ workload, who have to push heavy wheelchairs and carry cabin luggage during their service. The wheelchair is equipped with technology that allows it to be completely autonomous when not in use, returning to the battery charging station by itself. Like the airport trolleys, the wheelchair can also be nested, which saves a lot of space.

Silvio Rebholz – On the Way to Work with…

Diploma project by Silvio Rebholz

Mention Excellent Prix EXECAL On the Way to Work with… is a series of video interviews in which I accompany designers, artists or other creative professionals on their way to work. For each episode, I designed a vehicle or a camera device adapted to the guests and their means of transport. These tailor-made objects are designed to create a surprising interview setting and to serve as a camera set-up to capture the conversation on the go without a big film crew. The daily commute is a transition period between private and professional life and forms the stage for an interview which sheds light on the guests’ personality and their passion for their job. The interview series is an experimentation to develop a personal ongoing project as an extension of my practice as a product designer.

FINE ARTS

Mathilde Imesch – Reclaim Set: (re)construire son pouvoir

Diploma project by Mathilde Imesch

Reclaim Set is a ceramic set that manifests ecofeminist ideas drawn from the history of witch hunts. The clay used consists of a mixture of mineral and organic materials, thus bringing together the mineral, plant and animal realms. This process also conjures up the four elements during the different phases of modelling, drying and firing. Witch hunts, which began in the 14th century, contributed greatly to the alienation of our connection with nature. The destruction of this heritage has resulted in declining autonomy and loss of power as a community in the face of institutional authority. Building your own Reclaim Set is a first step towards legitimising your power. When we use our experience to change everyday life, we transform reality and fight against cultures of oppression.

Ka Yin Cheung – Heat-Sync

Diploma project by Ka Yin Cheung

Developed in collaboration with MITHRAS Technology, Heat-Sync is an electronic paper watch using thermoelectric technology to convert body heat into electrical energy. Heat-Sync visualises and reinforces the principles of thermoelectric technology. The watch strap collects heat from the wrist and the watch case works as a heat sink for cooling. The energy is generated by the temperature difference between the watch case and the strap.

PRODUCT DESIGN

Julian Ribler – Plinth

Diploma project by Julian Ribler

Passive heating systems are constantly evolving and becoming ever more present, yet in the field of public construction, the need for radiators is recognised as predominant in large open spaces. This provides an opportunity to rethink the traditional radiator archetype and its integration as an architectural element in symbiosis with passive heating systems. Plinth is a reinterpretation of the traditional radiator typology that bridges the gap between seasonal use as an object of heating and comfort and a year-round sitting solution. In collaboration with Zehnder, the design is based on a modular construction system that allows freedom of customisation.

Vanessa Udriot – Tidá nehés oyendau

Diploma project by Vanessa Udriot

Coming from the field of architecture, I have developed a particular interest in the representations and perceptions of the spaces and materiality that surround us. I also seek to understand how things are linked to memories and histories, how objects and subjects evolve in their environment. My practice aims to question memory in a broad sense, often in relation to culture, from its different understandings to its many relationships. By associating borders and emotions, the question of identity is increasingly present in my work. I approach these subjects through a mix of personal experiences and a lot of research.

FINE ARTS

Luana Cardinaux – Sans titre

Diploma project by Luana Cardinaux

The particular circumstances of the health crisis during the last year-and-a-half of my studies led me to focus my research on concepts of home and the household – the self and the home. An imaginary environment emerged from these notions and through my personal experiences and references with imagery depicting a troubled, childhood-inspired world. The mixing of different techniques allows for both the readability and the loss of messages.

La festa degli innocenti

FINE ARTS

La festa degli innocenti

Diploma project by Andrea Vescovi (Colletivo Silencio, in collaboration with Stefano Baldini)

The Feast of the Innocents is a show born from research we carried out between Savona and Renens, the former city being where we grew up, the latter where we now live. The path that led us to establish a parallel was based on the collection of stories and testimonies of those who lived in these two provinces, which although distant, are linked by strong yet silent similarities. The stories of retirees, immigrants and workers challenged our position in this flow. We therefore tried, by unravelling the relationships with the past, to weave one with the present, paving the way for a concrete search for a community. These stories are interwoven with our experience in the form of projections, music and verbal narration.

Charlotta Åman – Babybo

PRODUCT DESIGN

Charlotta Åman – Babybo

Diploma project by Charlotta Åman

Mention Bien Babybo is a portable baby nest that offers a safe environment for babies from 0 to 6 months. The compact design easily converts into a play mat, changing pad or sleeping pod. In general, the use of second-hand foam products is not recommended for newborns due to the risk of mould, dust mites and bacteria. They are also a source of toxins that the baby may inhale. Babybo is therefore made entirely of non-toxic, organic material and allows for a biodegradation process at the end of its use. The mattress core is made of hypoallergenic and breathable mycelium foam (Mycoflex™) and banana fibre textile (Bananatex®).

Adèle Anstett – Too Old for the Playground, Where Should We Hang ?

Diploma project by Adèle Anstett

“Only a few of us, amid the great fabrications of society, hang on to our really childish reactions, still wonder naively what we are doing on the earth and what sort of joke is being played on us. We want to decipher skies and paintings, go behind these starry backgrounds or these painted canvases and, like kids trying to find a gap in a fence, try to look through the cracks in the world.” — Bataille, G. (1949). The Cruel Practice of Art Featuring transverse and hybrid spaces, closed and open, which bear witness to a process of construction of oneself and of the group by the appropriation of these spaces and their transformation, thanks to the childish character of each one. Twisting things, commuting rigid structures through use and escapig determinism with a certain lightness.

PRODUCT DESIGN

Nadav Goldenberg – Earthen Playground

Diploma project by Nadav Goldenberg

Mention Très bien Prix BG Ingénieurs Conseils Inspired by the earthen landscapes of my childhood, I explored the relationship between the environment and play. Discovering the ancient building technique of rammed earth led me to design a series of play structures and elements that showcase the natural processes and open new channels of imagination and experimentation. The project centred around a workshop with the third grade students of the Steiner school of Lausanne, who built their own playground using locally sourced material from a neighbouring quarry, and learned the process of earth construction.

Clara Roumégoux – Territoires du geste

PHOTOGRAPHY

Clara Roumégoux – Territoires du geste

Diploma project by Clara Roumégoux

The video Territoires du geste features portraits of women of different generations living in France with a dual cultural identity. From gesture to speech, the question of transmission emerges thanks to a modest mechanism, where material and immaterial dimensions meet between stories and culinary activities. How does the gesture become a symbol of silent resistance? The kitchen stages the political elements that history reveals. From couscous to meatballs, ma’amoul and Turkish coffee, these foodstuffs of historical and cultural heritage bring us back to the resulting spiritual heritage. The movement of the hands sets the stage for the political elements that their words weave, right down to the psyche of dreams and fears.

Alizée Quinche – They Blossom at Night

PHOTOGRAPHY

Alizée Quinche – They Blossom at Night

Diploma project by Alizée Quinche

Mention Bien They Blossom at Night explores the vision of a shifting biotechnological intimacy, the opening to an altered state of consciousness towards an undefined space, a moment in time when the connection between bodies becomes fluid(s), a form of sexuality where each partner, each relationship, transforms and helps beings evolve through sharing and emancipation. Featuring an immersive video-sound installation, the project appropriates the symbolic force of procreation. It explores the materiality of non-reproductive sexuality by developing a microbiological creature that represents the transmissions of polyamorous intimacy. The work expresses the cohesion between the organicity of relationships and a form of technology that allows for different social liberations, in reference to medically assisted procreation.

Justine Willa – Where Are the Exits up There?

Diploma project by Justine Willa

In the summer of 2021, Asclepios, a scientific association, organised a mission in the Swiss Alps, simulating life on a celestial body other than Earth. Confined for ten days in tunnels 450 metres below the ground, six “astronauts” transformed this hideout into an otherworldly place and modelled their daily life on the rhythm of life in space. This retro-futuristic scenario, seen in scientific circles and science fiction, questions reality, the projection of reality and the resulting image. Based on their mission, my project transcribes the fantasy of space exploration through immersion, mixing the reality of the situation with artificial images, and questions our place in the universe and our role in the future of humanity.

Clément Pic – That's a Wrap!

Diploma project by Clément Pic

Mention Très bien In French, the accountant (comptable) and the story-teller (conteur) share the same etymological root. Through a shift in meaning, the accountant becomes the story-teller. Two sentences strike the time: - “Il est l’heure du bilan” (It’s time to take stock). - “Objectifs non atteints” (Objectives not met).

PHOTOGRAPHY

Caroline Perrenoud – Entre-deux, il n'y a pas rien

Diploma project by Caroline Perrenoud

There is a space between what we call reality and virtual reality, which by definition is unreal. In this in-between space, full of possibilities, identities are created and emancipated. Sexualities are discovered and avatars are roles that we choose to embody. These roles are manifold and represent the multiplicity of the self. Women in their plurality, dissidents, the in-between space enables us to show ourselves, to observe each other, to make ourselves powerful and claim our place and freedom. Through self-sexualisation, the monetisation of the self-image, sexual or romantic relationships, the avatars evolve seamlessly and transform. They decide, take over the space and meet in an immersive video installation.

Steven Rüthy – Insight

PHOTOGRAPHY

Steven Rüthy – Insight

Diploma project by Steven Rüthy

Mention Bien. Do we still see everything that happens around us ? Insight is a short film set in an architectural social housing complex in Bümpliz-Bern, which offers a unique perspective of the world as viewed by an elderly couple living in the Holenacker district on the outskirts of the Swiss capital. In this project I confront the viewer with a way of life which for us as visual artists and most likely for many others, is unimaginable. I question the spatial notion of a secure/safe space and how it is used and therefore perceived from an external point of view, my own. Insight therefore consists of stepping into the shoes of someone who has blurred vision, understanding what it is like and how it affects the way you live.

Marie Noury – Nous voir ensemble

PHOTOGRAPHY

Marie Noury – Nous voir ensemble

Diploma project by Marie Noury

Mention Très bien What possible stories can twenty-four by six centimetres trigger? A photography that I hold dear generates a collective conversation. Nous voir ensemble takes the form of an investigation into a familiar and founding archive where words and visions meet. From this vernacular photography, voices narrate, project, and imagine. What story, memory and presence do these shots, on and off-screen, generate? How do words bring back to life a picture that has been worn out over time by the viewer’s gaze ?

Lara Ziörjen – No Hard Feelings

PHOTOGRAPHY

Lara Ziörjen – No Hard Feelings

Diploma project by Lara Ziörjen

Mention Bien. No Hard Feelings is a personal exploration of the world we live in. Through these images, a powerful vision of our culture emerges – who are we, how do we consume and ultimately, where are we headed? The book shows an abundant world in which fast fashion, artificial food and useless objects accumulate. An important aspect of this work is the combination of images and the work on detail, approaching an object, analysing and understanding it. It addresses the absurdity and banality of everyday life. The images were all taken with a mobile phone, an essential tool that complements my conceptual.

Lara Marino – Brain Scan

FINE ARTS

Lara Marino – Brain Scan

Diploma project by Lara Marino

Mention Bien Prix Ernest Manganel This is a retrospective of my work, a deeper visualisation of my dissertation and an extension of my research. Through the metaphor of a brain forest where several works, characters, spaces and objects take place and coexist. The body is also integrated as a form of landscape. An ecosystem filled with information where the work reveals its creation. Through the fascination of bodily evolution and decay, we discover figurative and chimerical pictorial environments that explore the relationship between the imaginary and maternal bonds. In the words of Romain Gary in his book Promise at Dawn : “With maternal love, life makes you a promise at dawn that it never keeps.”
