Image, sound and politics: how to raise the image The main aim of the course is to stimulate reflection on the audiovisual gesture.

Workshop with Elizaveta Porodina

by Maude Bally, Ettore Bruni, Adel Debabéche, Rebecca Dubuis, Sofia Grytsiv, Belinda Kiela, Lester Kielstein, Eliot Pizzera, Melanie Rengifo, Inès Riber, Ashley Schneiter, Héloïse Tourrenc, Kristina Yenza, Johanna Bommer, Jennica Folkesson, Lorane Hochstätter, Cyriane Rawyler, Seraphine Sallin-Mason, Rose Graf, Lee Eggenschwiler, Fredrik Maag, Emanuele Delpozzo, Hector Codazzi, Maël Le Guével

For this workshop, Elizaveta Porodina asked the students to explore the theme "AFTERHUMAN". This theme opens up perspectives for capturing futuristic landscapes, representing the potential fusion of technology and humanity. Think about visually depicting the coexistence of artificial intelligence, cybernetics or biotechnology with natural elements. Experiment with innovative techniques to convey a sense of evolution or transcendence. This exploration invites photographers to creatively interpret and visually narrate a future beyond conventional human experience.

Hyperlab

with Vincent Jacquier, Angelo Benedetto, Ali-Eddine Abdelkhalek, Jean-Vincent Simonet, Clément Rouzaud

In collaboration with the HYPEROUEST music festival, ECAL students were given the opportunity to design a visual installation in the room adjacent to the festival's ephemeral club, located on the Veillon wasteland in Crissier. For this project, 1st-year students worked in groups, mixing Bachelors in Graphic Design, Media & Interaction Design and Photography. Their main objective was to create powerful and creative visual sequences around the central theme of "HYPER". At the same time, second-year students in the Graphic Design option enriched this project by developing the exhibition's visual identity. These interdisciplinary collaborations stimulated exchanges and encouraged visual cohesion, connecting the different ideas and reinforcing the "laboratory" and experimental aspect of the project.
