Annoucing Conference n°2 @ La Gaîté Lyrique
Meeting with Yasmine Abbas
Tuesday 19 April 2016 at 19h19
Yasmine will discuss contemporary mobilities, our immersion in fluid spaces, world inhabited by strange creatures, hybrids, humans, and non-humans and the neo-nomads that we have become. Needs of memorable experience and anchoring in a world that is always in flux calls for particular architecture and architectural processes that take into account mobile sensory parameters.
Yasmine Abbas is a hybrid, neo-nomad and architect exploring mobilities, physical, mental and digital, art and design processes. Graduated with a master of science from MIT and a Doctor of Design from Harvard Graduate School of Design, she is today Chair of Design Management at Paris College of Art and consultant in urban strategic design. She is also coordinator of the "Art and Culture in the Digital Turn" area within the Advanced Master DESIGN by DATA run by École des Ponts Paris Tech and directed by Francesco Cingolani.
Replay Conference n°2 @ La Gaîté Lyrique with special guest Eric Vernhes
Eric Vernhes, as a multidisciplinary artist creates kinetic visual or sound installations and systems, whose behaviour are programmed on the basis of self-generative logicals, whether interactive or hybrids.
Architect from the Paul Virilio studio, then scriptwriter, filmaker and musician, Eric Vernhes uses digital process and the extract from their technical context at the service of a timeless speech inspired by literature and philosophy.
During this event, Eric Vernhes achieved the “dissection” of one of his work, “Gerridae” which is a predictive and interactive text generator.
By showing how the creative process of a piece of art is graduated, twisted or inspired by software tools it is made from, this talk asked what do opposite or bind technology, humans and nature.
Participants of the Design by Data Advanced Master will have the opportunity to work with Eric Vernhes in the program as he is in charge of the “Art, Technology and the Creative Process” course.
