Talking Camera

Blind sight

This photo camera is special : it has no visual feedback. When you press the button, the image is processed through an artificial intelligence to describe the picture. The interesting point behind this point is that we can see what we shoot and ear how the algorithm mistakes the reality. As part of the Exhibition about guns and lethal designs « Ligne de Mire » at Mudac (Lausanne), this project shows the limits of a technology but also questions « automatic » or « intelligent » designs by showing us how machine can see us or can misinterpret reality.

Organic Capture

Analog App

This prototype explore new ways to capture images on a smart phone. There is no more button to press but a case to touch, to squeeze. The distorsions of the case are processed by sensors and the n sent to the app to capture and render a picture that you can save. In this way, taking photo is no more capturing reality but rendering a unique reality.

Mail/Music Box

Decoding or forgetting

This little box, once open, read your most recent twitter inbox. You have to decode this music with an app if you want to know what is the message because once it is played, there is no coming back : the message is erased.

Stay A little Closer

Music Clip for LZR

This music video confront the viewer with cam girls found on the internet. From the raw footage distributed online, the editing but also the effects coded on the images makes a new esthetics emerge. The interaction human-machine-human is like melting to a transcendance.

Faux Bourdon

Sound rotating

Faux Bourdon is an interactive installation around the theme of "Invisible Narratives" developed for KIKK Festival 2017 in Namur, Belgium. Visitors passing by are surprised by the directional sound of a drone. The sculpture moves to follow them.

Same Uniqueness

"IKEA invites LMX, a collective of ECAL Bachelor Fine Arts and Bachelor Media & Interaction Design students, to produce acrylic paintings with a programmable machine. Using the extensive possibilities of randomness, colour mix, superposition and serial production provided by this new machine, the students create numerous artworks. In changing the machine original settings (x, y and z shifting positions, cyan, magenta, yellow, black and white percentages, nozzle size, paint flow, random parameters…) and in using technology to address essential issues in painting, LMX tested the creative and repetitive gesture potential allowed by the mathematical precision of the code and the infallible mechanism of the machine."

Browse Air

Analog digital reading

This project was part of "When Objects dream" for the Milan Design Week in 2016. This magical fan can browse a book. A kind of new digital book which require wind to turn its pages.

Exhibited at the Milan Design Week 2016, at the ELAC in Renens and for the Dubai Design Week 2016.

Acid Pendulum

Abstract watchmaking

How to represent the flow of time on a screen without falling into a typical screensaver. I took some liberties on the shape and the movement in order to make it more interesting, hypnotic and contemplative. It’s a pendulum balancing indefinitely. Its color is made by the clock of your computer.
