Pierre-Xavier Puissant – EURI - LOW RES AWAY

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Cyril Diagne, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo

LOW RES AWAY is a modular telepresence system of which EURI is the first module. The goal of this work was to extend one of the reflexions of my Bachelor Thesis: the idea that the instantaneity of the Net "makes geography obsolete". I decided to work on the sound representation of weather data based on simple idiophonic objects. For this first module, I worked on rain data. An app allows the user to define a point to retrieve weather data from. The EURI then create an abstract sound composition, replicating a distant reality.

Research project with Christophe Guignard, Patrick Keller, Nicolas Nova

From May 29 to August 30 2015, the ongoing design research "Inhabiting and Interfacing the Cloud(s)" is presented at the Haus der elektronischen Künste (H3K) in Basel, in the frame of the exhibition Poetics and Politics of Data. Inhabiting & Interfacing the Cloud(s) is an ongoing design research about Cloud Computing, as well as about the iconic infrastructure that underpinns this service, the data center. With the support of HES-SO/University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland, it explores the creation of design counter-proposals to the current expression of this technological and functional arrangement, particularly in its forms intended for private individuals and end users (Personal Cloud). Halfway through the exploration process, the current status of the work is presented with a scenography by fabric | ch as part of the media art exhibition Poetics and Politics of Data, curated by Sabine Himmelsbach, at the Haus der elektronschen Künste (H3K) in Basel. http://www.iiclouds.org Research assistants: Lucien Langton, Charles Chalas Partners: James Auger (Auger-Loizeau), Christian Babski (fabric | ch), Matthew Plummer-Fernandez (#algopop) Photography: David Colombini, Marco Frauchiger
