RECENT PROJECTS

+ Deterritorialized Daylight [2013]

Evolutionary luminous artefact and artificial daylight based on the Deterritorialized Living open data feeds.
-
Deterritorialized Daylight is an abstract, reverse engineered day that develops strange behaviors: daylight is always "on" but at different intensities (continuously oscillating between dusk, dawn, sunny day, cloudy day, etc.), nighttime therefore never occurs. The unique day that takes place within it doesn't have a start, nor an end. It is continuous.

Exhibition during "Soleils numériques" at the Festival Acces(s) (Pau, France), 2013. Curator: Ewen Chardronnet.

+ Deterritorialized Living [2013]

Artificial, "geo-engineered" troposphere (livable part of the atmosphere) delivered in the form of open data feeds. Created during a residency at the Tsinghua University (Beijing).
-
Deterritorialized Living is an open source artificial troposphere that reverses our causal relationship to the natural rhythms of day and night, air quality, seasons, time. It is a “man made” environment where the atmosphere is the effect, continuously shaped from the global activities on the networks produced by humans and robots.
-
With the support of Pro Helvetia.
Exhibited as an Associated Project during the Lisbon Architecture Triennale - Close, Closer - (Lisbon, Portugal), and the Festival Acces(s) (Pau, France), 2013. Curators: Beatrice Galilee and Ewen Chardronnet.

Architectural device and monitoring installation created for the 2012 Festival de la Cité Lausanne.
-
"Two distinct "presents" were observing each other, close to one another: the present of a public park with its "scene", its "bar", its "festival-goers" and the present of a second place, the footbridge or "almost archeological" path that overlooked the whole, allowing to openly structure, observe, sense and record it. (...)"
