Courbe

Courbe (Curve) is a sedicessimo made from the poem "Capitale de la douleur" (1926) by Paul Éluard. It draws on the expression of the curved shapes and the folds present in this text. Typography and photography are part of this idea. Sedicessimo, as an editorial medium, highlights the transition from one extract to another. It gently reveals the typographical shapes as the reading progresses. Moreover, the reader chooses to manipulate them in his own way. He thus browses the poem, making his way through his own path.

Project in collaboration with Agathe Ruelland-Remy.

Ecrin

With the Société Métallurgique de Normandie (SMN), the Colombelles plateau is inhabited by three types of social classes confined to three types of housing: workers' habitats, foremen’s houses and villas. Yet, by the darkness of the night the noticible social differences on the façades disappear only in part. In fact, when the windows start to light up, the different architectures are no longer obvious but the window frame is always identifiable. Indeed, even in the finest detail can these social differences be revealed. In addition, the Colombelles plateau was built for families where one or several members worked at the SMN which resulted in surveillance and voyeurism. Thus, while observing the course of life being lead during nighttime in these households, I wanted to transcribe this indiscretion, while respecting their intimacy.
