• Rencontre Eau Terre

    Par Loïc Rittener-Ruff, Philippe Jenny, 24/10/18

    Lieu: Plage du Laviau, St-Sulpice 



    Lorsque nous nous sommes rendus au Laviau pour la première fois, nous avons trouvé le lieu fabuleux, puis, nous avons remarqué le dégagement idyllique qu'offrait la plage sur les montagnes avoisinantes. C'est pourquoi que nous nous sommes intéressés à ce lieu.

    Notre Intérêt: La Rencontre entre la Terre et l'Eau


    En observant le lieu, nous avons choisi de nous intéresser au point de rencontre entre le lac Léman et la plage du Laviau. Pour ce faire, nous avons arpenté un segment de plage.

    En arrivant sur le site nous nous sommes intéressées à un rocher spécifique pour deux raisons distinctes. Sa forme, semblable à une montagne, nous a tout de suite interpelée. Nous l'avons donc imaginé à une autre échelle. Puis, la relation entre sa fixité et son environnement dynamique a également été déterminante pour notre choix.

    Dû à sa forme complexe et sa situation nous avons du créer un dispositif de mesure adéquat. Pour cela, nous avons fixé une planche horizontale avec un quadrillage (5x5cm) au dessus du rocher. Puis, nous avons mesuré les distances entre la planche et la surface du rocher à l'aide d'un fil à plomb. Il en est résolu une multitude de mesures exprimant le relief de la surface de notre sujet.

    Nous avons choisi deux échelles différentes pour représenter nos mesures: une horizontale pour le quadrillage et une verticale pour les hauteurs. Ce choix nous suivra tout au long du projet.

    FLOATING HINGE

    Measures : 

    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.

    ELEMENT : 

        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.

    Is perception reality?

    Relativism: is the idea that views are relative to differences in perception and consideration.

    There is no universal, objective truth according to relativism; rather each point of view has its own truth.

    Nous avons mesuré nos distances en utilisant comme point repère, nos chevilles, genoux, hanches, épaules et enfin, la limite où nos pieds touchaient encore le sol.


    Nous avons mesuré en marchant dans la direction de chacune des bouées.


    La distance horizontale a été calculée en comptant nos pas.


    Nous avons par la suite traduit toutes nos valeurs « corporelles » en valeurs métriques.

  • Harbour entrance

            Site of interest.

    First picture of the site that interested us.


            Measures method.

    A mesh is created between strategic points to structure our measures. Our approach is to work on vertical plans following the strings that we used to make the mesh. Finally, we get thirteen organised sections that we will transfer on different drawings to have a base for our work.

    Measure method of the site.



            Drawings.

    Using the sketch made on the site, we've experienced two ways to represent the "fragment of reality" that we measured with the method cited before. Each way has it's own positive and negative points.

    Drawing with Monge projection (with deformation of the sections). Scale: 1:66. 



            Modelling the plasters.

    We decided to divide our cast in six different pieces to be able to perceive the way we measured the relief on the site. The lines that cut our casts in six represent the strings that we used. This method allows us to use the different cast separately or together depending on our needs.

    Two molds before casting the plaster. Scale 1:66.



    After unmolding our first plaster casts, we noticed that we forgot to flip the base when we drew the molds. We took it in a good way, and we had even more motivation to continue our process. You can not learn without doing mistakes. Therefore, we made it one more time and we finally got our six little casts in the right position.

    Our plaster fitting with the drawing. Scale 1:66.



    The moving element of the site was missing on our plaster. Therefore, we decided to represent it with plaster as well. As we wanted the water to embrace the relief of the ground it was not possible to build a new mold to cast it. We had the idea to add a plastic film on the surface of the plaster to use it as a base. This process worked and even the movement of the water was symbolised where it join the ground.
