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

André Andrade – 300 000 km/s

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo

The probable future expansion of the territory of Man towards Mars will bring us  to communicate through an interplanetary Internet. The distance between the two planets will not physically allow the immediacy of the Internet as we know it on Earth. My project highlights the limit of the communication speed through a simplified visualization of a permanent ping (round-trip time) between Earth and Mars. In a world where everything is accelerating, 300’000 km/s symbolically illustrates the limits of physics and evokes a patience that we are not used to anymore.
