This porject is about creating a space of transition, but also a space of graphic or artistic intervention.
It organizes the passage by creating a sensorial and visual experience.
The visitor, by walking through the installation, alters the visual composition of the spinning boards.
Also, the project gives the opportunity to the user to requestion the notion of passage.
The boards, by their rotation, can create really narrow spaces in which the density can be really high.
The user must then engage a negociation of space.
The notion of Inside/Outside is also very important in this project.
If we are outside of the construction, we have before our eyes a moving and changing exhibition, but if we're inside, we have ourselves a spacial experience.
However we can't experiences these two feelings at the same time.
The project is located in the ways that it can be seen from the more diverse point of view possible and available on the site.
Also, the graphic composition that are on the boards can be in relation with what takes place under the bridge, such as spray paint, or with what takes place in the ZHdK.

The idea of this week was to build the three rooms with only two planes for the Main and secondary room and three for the bed keeping in mind the idea of assembly.
First idea is to analyze the space of the painting from Pieter de Hooch. Using the different rooms (main room, secondary room and bed) the aim is to separate them and put them in a line in order to create a perspective.
This room reference the bed in the painting. It's a more extended space coming from the idea of infinity in the darkness from the painting.
The way that the secondary room and the bed are linked to the protostructure is different than the link of the main room. That come from the importance of the main room in the second idea.
Second idea is to put them together in another way than in the painting. Put in the bed and secondary room more in the main room is the target. By doing that it creates a new space.
What's inside these constructions?
This week the aim was to insert our ideas in the protostructure.Using the same disposition as the plasters of last week and putting them in a line to create the idea of infinity. The three constructions are now build in carboard cause of their weight.
An other idea was to be able to recreate the spacial divitions from the plaster of first week.
I based my project on the picture that we choose last week. Taking the three different parts (bed, secondary room and main room) of plasters from last week, separated these different parts and put them in a straight line. More, to put this configuration in the line of the railway from Zürich to remember the picture when you're on a railway and you're looking at the infinity in front of you.
The work is about recreating the space of a picture. Here, a canvas by Peter de Hooch nammed "A mother's duty".
First step, the reconstitution of the orthogonal projections from the perspective.
First, we casted is a simple representation of the space based on the drawing.
We worked about depth from Peter de Hooch's point of view:
Interested by the spaces which we cannot see, we extruded it by the direction of the point of view and experimented differents dimensions. In the third mold the spaces tighten in fonction of the depth like in a perceptive view.
For our second project, we decided to base our research on the continuity of the first one. It consisted of analyzing a given zone, and choose a particular building or object that interested us.From our point of view, located in front of the Old Kursaal, we saw an eye-catching construction : "La Maison Mercier", of Gothic Revival architecture. As a matter of fact, it stands-out from the surroundings, just like the Old Kursaal. Consequently we wanted to draw a connection between both structures and establish a tension, as it defines the space and gives a global view of the zone.
To represent this tension, we build a triangle structure with a reclining bed and chair, placed between the two opposite buildings.(horizontal elements).
By being linked together horizontally, they form a table, with white painted strips, to enhance the orientation of the tension and link. The window (vertical object) is represented by our point of view when we are placed on the chair and on the bed. In fact, when we are on the structure, our vanishing point is centered on either the Maison Mercier or the Old Kursaal. Furthermore, the bed cannot stand without the chair and vice versa, so it increases the tension of our structure and of the buildings.

Nous avons repenser la maquette précédente pour qu'elle soit repliable sur elle même et facilement transportable, tout en intégrant un lit et une chaise ainsi qu'une fenêtre déterminée par notre position sur la chaise ou le lit.
Lorsque nous sommes situés sur la structure nous voyons toujours la Maison Mercier et l'ancien Kursaal, une fois placés soit sur la chaise soit sur le lit.

Pour cette troisième semaine de préparation, nous nous sommes inspirés d'un ancien appareil photo. L'élément est toujours situé entre les deux bâtiments. Pour observer l'ancien Kursaal ou la Maison Mercier, il faut se placer de part et d'autre de l'élément.

Pour notre deuxième essai, nous avons fait une pièce, avec deux fenêtres, un lit et une table. Cet élément est placé entre les deux bâtiments, pour créer une idée de tension. Chaque fenêtre donne sur un bâtiment : la Maison Mercier et l'ancien Kursaal (2 Rue des Terreaux).

Pour ce projet, nous voulons nous baser sur Measures, en reprenant notre idée de la tension entre les deux bâtiments. Pour ce faire, nous avons fait une maquette table-lit-fenêtre, pour donner une ouverture sur la zone et voir la Maison Mercier.
Nous avons également intégré une porte pour donner une idée de perspective et pour nous faire concentrer sur la Maison Mercier.
