• Floats

    Par Elisa Nadas, Léo Ornstein, 24/10/18

    Notre maquette nous a ouvert une porte sur un nouvel espace. Grâce à nos mesures nous avons pu créer des murs qui délimitent un lieu, une frontière entre de l'eau et de l'eau. Ce nouvel espace nous a permis de réfléchir à notre élément et   sur l'interaction du corps humain dans l'eau. Comment réagit-on dans cet espace aquatique ? Comment pouvons nous appuyer, nous reposer ? Nous avons étudié les différents appuis du corps dans l'eau à travers le dessin. Pour différentes positions du corps humain nous avons dessiner différents appuis, des cadres permettant un certain mouvement dans l'eau

    Pour notre élément nous avons construit un de ces cadres avec du bois et du plexiglass, tous les deux des matériaux flottants. Nous avons construit un cadre en forme de sablier car il offrait plusieurs appuis comme les pieds, les genoux, les mains et le torse. Ce sablier décrit un des instants dans l'eau.

  • Les Bouées, Elements

    Par Alessia Grosso, 24/10/18


    Our project revolves around the buoys of the Saint-Sulpice beach. Floating, between water and air, they are not easily reachable. From the shore their dimensions as well as their spatial arrangement are hard to guess. Our study of them during MESURES consisted of understanding their disposition and the terrain of the land surrounding them.

    To do so we chose an origin point on our beach from which we effectuated measures to each buoy. After being able to understand the true disposition of these objects we realised that our original impression of the spatial disposition of the buoys was false, modified by our perception of them.  

    This made us think. If there exists a distortion of perception when one a observes the buoys from the shore, how large is the diversity of perceptions that coexist inside the region that we have observed and measured? 

    To understand this phenomena we started by drawing it. We chose to create two different matrices. The first represents the interaction between the buoys and one another. The second showcases the relationship between the buoys and points of the shore. This enabled us to get a better vision of the different dynamics in the space we were working with.

    After working on our drawings, we noticed angular shapes and crossings that seemed to explicit the relationships between the buoys quite well.

    We decided to create elements out of these crossings in the goal of visually explicating the spatial relationship between the buoys with one another and with the shore.


    Determining the shape, dimensions and materiality of our elements:

  • Floating hinge

    Par Audrey Wurges, 24/10/18

    Our site is at the end of the Laviau track, and at the exit of the small Harbour. We found our site at first sight because it was the junction between the ground and the lake. We approached to the junction of the two different environment (the dirt and the water), and we saw a little rock that was in between the ground and the lake. We then decided to measure this rock. The thing was that the rock was both on top the water and in the water, so we decided to measure only the apparent part of the rock. For that, we used little ropes that were attached to the grid on their top and that fell on the rock at their bottom. 

    Then we made the mold, in cardboard, of the rock that we measured. Then we made the rock in plaster at a scale of 1:3.

       The next step was to make an element. 

    To do that, we thought about the reasons that made us like this site. And directly we both talked about the junction between the water, with its dynamic movement, and the ground with its stability. So we decided to build an inch that could both represent a movement and a fixe part. We thought about building a structure around the rock, and at its extremity would be fixed some inches that had a part which was moving. 

    We made different sized inches, and we thought of a huge inch that could hold a person. The person would be able to sit on the inch and feel the movement of the water, even though he was attached to the ground.

  • Colonnes (système de mesure)

    Par Ella Bacchetta, Ellen Enriquez, 23/10/18

    Colonnes



    Pour cette nouvelle phasenous nous sommes penchées vers notre système de mesure ayant servi à mouler notre sujet de la première phase, à savoir: measures. Nous avons choisi de "remplir" les cavités qui sont apparues lorsque nous construisions la structure du moule de notre rocher. Finalement, nous avons représenté cette méthode de mesure en 3 dimensions à travers de nombreuses colonnes.

  • Amplification of sounds

    Par Jérôme Margueron, Raphaël Staubli, 22/10/18



        Idea of sounds.

    When we started the phase ELEMENTS, we did not have any idea of what we could do on this site but one thing that we knew is that we wanted our work to be in relation with the water that is very important on the site. We decided to look back to the beginning of our process to understand why we chose this site and not another. We realised that we experienced the relaxing atmosphere of the waves landing on the rocks that are at the entrance of the harbour and chose this site instinctively. 

    After realising that, we decided to develop something that could amplify this sound and make this experience more intense. We imagined different way to do it and found the idea of a giant cone interesting because it would make people asking what this is. The cone that we developed could be used in two different way: the person could either stand behind it with his head inside the small hole at the back or sit inside of it at the other extremity.

        The element.

    As we are in the phase ELEMENTS, we decided to make a model of the fondation of the cone while it is what attach our structure to the ground and this site specifically. We designed a small wall that let people see the entire form of this cone without taking to much space and breaking its shape. The wall has a gap on its middle to permit us to see under the cone from the summit to the base.
