Nina Treichler – 여기 저기 어디 (Here There Where)

by Nina Treichler

여기 저기 어디 (Here There Where) is the story of a young Swiss-Iranian-American woman who struggles to find her place within her cultural heritage, who somehow finds (a part of) herself in a form of culture that is not her own. It is a subjective interpretation of the complexities of identity and cultural belonging. It is a dialogue between the given self and the chosen self. It is an exploration of a constructed reality, a hazy state of in between, an absurd space that feels perfectly familiar yet utterly foreign. It is a dance between Lausanne and Seoul, an endless chase between here and there within a mysterious where. It is everyday contingencies that serve as a stage for my fragmented identities. 여기 저기 어디 (Here There Where) is an ode to anyone who exists without a precise sense of attachment despite rich, mixed roots.

MEDIA & INTERACTION DESIGN

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 bachelors had to create multi-media projects. A collaboration of the Visual Communication department which had as subject the SDGs (*Sustainable Development Goals). The theme was called "For a good cause, make the SDGs a reality" and its objective was to allow students to develop a cause that is close to their hearts. Each project consists of at least two different media, one primary and one secondary. These projects could take any form that the students deemed relevant, be it a website, editions, posters, a video sequence or virtual reality.

Lost Records

Lost Records

with Ronny Hunger

Sometimes you don’t know that something has been lost — until it’s found again. How many brilliant lost, neglected and forgotten artists can there be? How many albums have been forgotten? How many have been lost? How many were rejected by labels because of political content, critical album artworks or band names? How many didn’t make it through a release and were eliminated or shelved for lack of success? How many dreams, hopes and statements were destroyed? We found 8 of these forgotten albums and worked on the record cover artworks, we tried to catch the mystical mood of these lost recordings, we tried to capture this forgotten music and tried to tell these incredible stories.
