    Le Panthéon possède un sol légèrement incurvé ce qui lui donne une structure unique. Chacun de nous est chargé de recréer un morceau de ce sol.Nos éléments sont l'élément A1 (morceau au centre du sol) et l'élément A11 (morceau à un extrémité du sol).

    Jeanne : You can feel the pencil in your hand, smell your pencil lead while you sharp it - a familiar sound - then you start to draw. The taste is divine. Black

    Introduction:

    The floor of Rome's Pantheon is not flat. It is, in fact, slightly curved. 

    We map out the form of said curve by creating wooden structures and plaster casts, which represent the measurements of each coordinate. We connect the corners of the wooden frame by a diagonal cross to stabilise it.

    Device to stand in, Bruce Nauman, 1966, enamel on steel, 21.91 cm x 68.8 cm x 44.13 cm, SFMOMA, California, USA

    Explanation:

    Into this object are infused two meanings, which balance in the double meaning of the title: on one hand this is an object which is to be stepped on; on the other hand it is a placeholder - a replacement of something else.

    In the first meaning, the viewer is invited to participate in the art, to step into the sloped object. The person’s body is forced to cooperate with the slant, changing the posture to remain balanced. This creates a rapport with the body that was not necessarily present before. Therefore we can ponder how this curve in the ground changes the observer's perspective of the rest of the Pantheon.

    The second meaning hints to a more complex reflection, however a simple way is to explore what the device resembles: a small stage or podium. This points to a theatricality in the elevation, the person on the object will become part of the art, performing the role dictated by the artist. This theatricality can be found in most elevated surfaces, and is interesting to keep in mind while working on the podium-like elevation of the models of the Pantheon's floor. 


    Question:

    How can we infuse personality into objects and drawings that seem so simple?
