Michael Pica – Confessionnal

MEDIA & INTERACTION DESIGN

Michael Pica – Confessionnal

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo, Laura Nieder, Pauline Saglio

Confessionnal is a web app that enables users to anonymously confess their behaviour on social networks. With the advent of social media years ago, the behaviour of users varies. Unmentionable acts are sometimes committed on these platforms. This project is inspired by the Catholic confessional as we know it but is based on the digital era we live in. Users live the anonymous experience with a mask as participants or spectators. They confess orally and personalise their mask based on their age, the platform or the main subject of the confession. On the other hand, they can observe other masks and listen to the confessions of other users.

Body City

Body City

Transversal project with Angelo Benedetto, Vincent Jacquier, Mitch Paone (Dia Studio), Jean-Vincent Simonet

Mapping of the Body City show Unique creation imagined for Lausanne en Jeux ! - the animation program of the Youth Olympic Games Lausanne 2020 - Body City is a show where arts and urban sports meet in an impressive open-air setting, on the central square of Lausanne. "Bodies in fusion with the city", it is from this strong image that Nicolas Musin conceived and realized Body City, a contemporary show questioning the relationship of the young generations to the city. On an open-air stage representing a city in constant mutation, more than 50 performers aged between 9 and 30 will cross their disciplines, bringing together arts and urban sports such as skateboarding, BMX, rollerblading, scooter, parkour and dance. A poetic and spectacular journey in the heart of Lausanne, where video, sound and light are mixed together! Imagined within the framework of Lausanne en Jeux, this show is above all a work of youth supported by art schools and training centers for urban disciplines established in the agglomeration of Lausanne. Thus, Body City has brought together different actors from Lausanne such as students from ECAL (video design), HEMU (composition of the original music and recording of the soundtrack), dancers from the Ecole-Atelier Rudra Béjart (dance and percussion), JDSEvents (hip hop, breakdance) as well as the riders from La Fièvre and the plotters from X-Trem Move. The mapping of the show was created by the students of the Visual Communication Department (BA Graphic Design, BA Photography, BA Media & Interaction Design) under the direction of Vincent Jacquier, Angelo Benedetto, Jean-Vincent Simonet and Mitch Paone while the editing was done by Amaury Hamon and Clément Lambelet.
