Salomé Chatriot – Lactose Oozing From a Breathing Singularity

Diploma project by Salomé Chatriot

In 2018 a sprawling turbo alternator awakened under Salomé Chatriot’s caresses as she helped it out of its lethargy with a set of soft medical systems. They merged to create a space time destined to be dismantled, fragmented and reassembled inside the machine’s fertile matrix: Fragile Ecosystem. In this polymorphic universe, the fusion of technological and organic elements fosters the emergence of sculptures and virtual environments. Physical processes such as Chatriot’s breathing activate mechanical systems, resulting in symbiosis between the human body and her technological devices. Stuck in this nymphosis, they are constantly exchanging enzymes, hormones and proteins while infecting each other’s systems with vital breath, carnal desire and empathic energy.

Salomé Chatriot – Distal Extension

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

The global context of personal and intimate data diffusion and the associated challenges enabled me to open a discussion on the contemporary medical sector and on the cognitive evolutions linked to the development of new technologies. This Rube Goldberg machine shows a chain reaction similar to the breath's journey within the human body, thanks to the combination of electronic devices and a person's sensory input. The spectator corporally extends himself spatially thanks to the real time interaction of his main vital functions with a physical and digital environment.

Swiss Data

Collaboration with Cyril Diagne, Vincent Jacquier

A series of interactive data-visualizations around swiss culture and the swissnex activity. Designed by Bachelor Media & Interaction Design students of ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne, the projects were initiated during a one-week trip to San Francisco in March 2016. They present a novel and entertaining way to display various data. Commissioned by swissnex San Francisco.
