Quick peek

Freelance French designer with an unpronounceable name, I am driven by curiosity and experimentation. I graduated with honors from HEAD-Geneva in 2015, right before the travel bug hit me. Since 2016, I am on an ongoing collaboration with swiss graphic designer Dimitri Delcourt. In 2017, I have also spent half a year working at LUST in The Netherlands. I have developed a strong interest in social and cultural fields, and I particularly enjoy working on joint and interdisciplinary projects. I am always looking for challenges – from traditional print work to interactive, computer-driven experiences.

Location

Pushing Schrödinger’s cat experiment ever further, I am currently being both in Grenoble (FR) and Geneva (CH). It can also happen that I am anywhere else in the world, actually quite often in Den Haag (NL)

Subjective Cities

Since 2017 — NL — Personal project
Personal perception of a city observed through (data)visualisation.

 Subjective cities is a project meant to gather thoughts and memories of places I have explored through data visualisation.

 

“First week in The Hague” is the first one I created. I felt the urge to produce an image that could sum up my first week living in this city and all the feelings it brought to me. The topic of the ways we create and keep memories is recurrent in my personal work, and approaching it through the spectrum of memories of a whole city has been particularly interesting. The people I met, the routes I followed, the activities I undertook and the neighborhoods I managed to comprehend all turned out to be the parameters defining my level of affinity with a given city.

 

In the meantime, it was important for me not only to show things, but also to make a story out of it. Thus, the visual organisation is chronologic: the narration exists thanks to the timeline.

 

The central representation shows only the places and streets I have seen or walked through: it is a map of my own, subjective vision of the city after a week – not an objective representation of The Hague.
