Alexis Gargaloni – Varia

with Aurèle Sack, Gilles Gavillet

Influenced by the rise of the metaverse, Varia is a metaphor of the early failure and absurdity of this technology, as well as research about typographic shapes. Mimicking the optimisation phenomena of object in 3D engines (Level of Detail), Varia is composed of three cuts of the same name: 0, 4, 8. While Level 0 seems closer to traditional typography, it is in fact a “smoothed out” version of the previous cuts, which already seeks to synthesise letters down to their most rudimentary forms. From the rigidity of the shapes, the existential constraints that the research brings to light illustrate the retrograde and dystopian vision of the metaverse, while at the same time offering a reassuring reflection of a future geometric transition of our bodies.

Dialogue

Dialogue

with Gilles Gavillet & Jonathan Hares

As part of the publishing course taught by Gilles Gavillet and Jonathan Hares, the 3rd year students worked on the layout of dialogue. They began by selecting a dialogue that had potential for visual creation. After identifying the graphic challenges of their subject, they defined an editorial solution.

Service Design - 2022

with Angelo Benedetto, Vincent Jacquier, Pauline Saglio

During the service design course, the 3rd year of the Graphic Design, Photography and Media & Interaction Design bachelor's degree programs realized multi-media projects. A collaboration of the Visual Communication department with the theme of SDGs (*Sustainable Development Goals). The theme named "For a good cause, make the SDGS a reality" aims to develop a cause close to the heart of the different student groups. Each project is composed of at least two different supports, one primary and one secondary. The projects could therefore take any form the students deemed relevant, be it a website, editions and posters, a video sequence, or even virtual reality.

Mapping Workshop - Nature morte

Mapping Workshop - Nature morte

with Florian Pittet, Clément Lambelet, Eric Morzier

The first year students in Graphic Design and Media & Interaction Design and Photography worked on mapping projects. The structures, which the different groups created with blocks of polystyrene, allowed them to experiment and create video, 2D and 3D content while playing with notions of space, depth and rhythm.
