Bisse

For this project the students were asked to design a collective installation that was part of the Geneva Sculpture Garden exhibition that took place in the Parc des Eaux-Vives and the Grange from June 12 to September 10, 2020. In the Parc des Eaux-Vives, there are some classic "garden" features, including a picturesque chalet recovered from the 1896 national exhibition. The students had to create a collective bisse (historical irrigation channels of the Valais) upstream from the chalet. What interactions with the public can this generate? How to take advantage of the flow generated by water and gravity?

Galerie des Bustes

Transversal project with Adrien Rovero

The Festival Images is a free event focused on contemporary images. The specificity of the Festival Images is to present monumental photography in the open air, while presenting projects around the image in a broader sense indoors. For the 2018 edition, ECAL was for the fourth time associated with the festival by pursuing the search for specific devices for outdoor image exhibitions. It is a question of imagining a photo booth. A space to take pictures of yourself alone or with others. The initiation, the fund, the global process will have to take the form of a real experience and interactivity. It is necessary to invent a device that is close to the installation, that is playful and that does not only provide a technical solution to the shooting. For the festival, this installation represents a real expectation of the audience as well as an income since each image costs 5.- Chf.

Festival Images

Studio project with Adrien Rovero, Martin Haldimann

On the occasion of the 2012 Images Festival, ECAL had proposed to the students from the 3rd year Bachelor Industrial Design to compose a reception zone for the EX-EPA building. Staging systems are known for its quality of usage and innovation. The students therefore decided to use staging systems to make a link to future renovations of the building that would start by the end the Images Festival so the preparations would already be done. For the project «Neil», the students worked on a scenography for the Grand Café Les Mouettes, which was a side event of the Images Festival, organised by the collective RATS, located in Vevey. It involves a series of furniture, composed of two materials: plane pine wood boards and ALUCOBOND panels. The precise manufacturing of the wooden pieces eases the joints of the white surfaces and forms the character of the furniture.
