Moments techniques en design graphique : du medium dans l’histoire des idées et des pratiques
Yann Aucompte
This article aims to analyze the representations of the medium used in graphic design circles with History of idea and the philosophy of techniques. Here we choose four significant moments for the practice of design: medium-controlled-by-science, material-essence-medium, normative-network-medium, expressive-medium. History and philosophy can restore the major societal issues at work behind the descriptions of technology that we have inherited. This short overview of definitions allows us to situate the transformations and circulations of our representations of the medium: they are produced by the literate class of the society, they do give a certain turnaround to our perceptions. - 2024/05
Les dimensions de l'espace sonore : concevoir l'expérience du public dans une installation immersive
Agathe Simon
Following residencies in the polar regions, Arctic Music, a 5.1 immersive sound installation, is created. During the post-production, the question arises of how best to conceive the experience of the public within such an apparatus. Yet spatialization enables three dimensions of sound space to be deployed: aesthetic, kinaesthetic, and political. It thus offers a singular experience, potentially opening up the audience to an ecological awareness. - 2023/11
BAUEN. Penser et construire l’habitat à travers l(es) objet(s) vestimentaire(s)
Ninon Leal
This article presents the first steps in a design research-project aimed at conceiving the clothing object as part of the larger scale of the habitat. Through its proximity to the wearer's body, clothing accompanies his or her movements, taking the form of a back and forth between the home and the surrounding world. To reopen the archetypal garment, we'll study it from the angle of the semiotic established by Anne Beyaert-Geslin in Sémiotique du design, and will complete it with interviews conducted with designers and artists about project practice and innovation. - 2023/11
Décentrer le design. Une approche pratique de la résonance
Christian Perrin
Thinking of design in terms of resonance, in the sense of Hartmut Rosa, allows us to embrace a non-instrumental conception of the project process. A number of contemporary practices in the field of design involve a decentering movement that resonance requires as a condition of possibility. These decentered practices strive to initiate a different relationship with the world and the otherness that inhabits it, a non-alienated relationship that outlines the contours of an alternative anthropology. The observation and analysis of this decentering, which operates from different perspectives (de-egocentric, de-ethnocentric, de-anthropocentric), contribute to the development of a critical theory of design. - 2023/06
Exposer les archives et la mémoire : les enjeux de la forme
Guillaume Svobodny
In this article, the aim is to observe and understand the role of form in the processes of exhibiting and promoting archives through the following question: "Does exhibiting archives allow us to constitute and transmit memories? Thus, the communication of archives is built around documents with a complex status necessarily linked to memory. However, the way in which this transmission is formulated plays a central role in the way in which the archives are approached and therefore their memorial content. This article is therefore structured around formal analyses of three models of archival exhibition for the general public: the museum exhibition, the digital exhibition and the publication. - 2024/07
Design et identités culturelles. Pour une exposition au service de la culture
Suzanne Anger
The aim of this article is to reflect on the role of design in the preservation of cultures, in particular by answering the following question : is design a tool for the resistance of cultural identities? Beyond the idea that design is responsible for the crisis of cultural identities, we will see that designers and museum institutions try to respond to this crisis in several ways : first by choosing distance and neutrality, then by taking sides and putting forward a radical approach in the presentation of culture. - 2024/07

Among the capture of identity, exposure, masquerade and role-play, this article demonstrates that virtual clothing is in line with the recreational principles of photography. - 2022/12
Tisser la peinture, traduire le tableau. Les reproductions tissées de tableaux comme tentatives de traduction
Camille Aguiraud
Woven reproductions of paintings, productions of the textile industry between the french cities of Lyon and Saint-Étienne, are popularized in the 19th century. Contextual pictures, from and for a time whose preoccupations might seem distant from us today, they yet immediately resemble classical painting, print, photography and digital imagery. By confronting the fine arts and programming, these images refuse any hasty categorization. Their existence raises the issue of technical reproduction: is the painting lost in its weaving? Is it kept in its multiplication? - 2022/12
Université d'été de la Preuve par 7, retour critique
Valentin Sanitas, Romain Mantout, Marie Tesson
On the 15th, 16th and 17th of July 2021, the Preuve par 7 organised a Summer University in parallel with the Bellastock festival. Looking for an alternative way to generate collective knowledge from certain practices of building the City, the ambition was to propose an alternative form of sharing experiences and knowledge. Based on the data collection systems set up by three doctoral students associated with the EFF&T Chair, we will offer a critical review of the perspectives outlined during these three days. - 2022/04

Luxe & Kitsch : le kitsch, une fatalité dans l’industrie du luxe ?
Alice Leblanc
In this research, we need to understand the impact of the “kitsch” in the creation of luxury objects. This industry faces a growing demand, induced by the need to get out from a painful life through some objects that’s bring an extract soul. Therefore, it is complex to stay creative in a society in perpetual motion. By reviving the past and crating pastiches, the kitsch revealed himself as the perfect creative vector for luxury brands. - 2021/11

Vers une approche délicate de l’exposition
Valentine Mathieu
The exhibition has always raised the question of visibility, but it now does so in a context of widespread exposure. Therefore, if the "why" and the "where" to exhibit are debated, we are interested, within the society of the spectacle, more particularly in the question of its "how". This article therefore questions our current means of exposure. - 2021/11

Design et imaginaire : les oubliés des vols spatiaux habités
Coralie Lhabitant
In this article, the aim is to understand how the spatial imaginary fits between specialists and the public, with whom it has a special relationship due to the functioning of space agencies on a public background. We will see how it is used to communicate or educate, but does not seem to be reinvested in the very design of manned space flight. - 2020/12

Vers une nouvelle forme d’inspiration
Elisa Leveneur
Originally born out of a need for freedom and emancipation and used to differentiate themselves, trends today are considered to homogenize. In order to understand where this change in relationship comes from, it is a question of immersing oneself in the vast and complex mechanisms of the appearance and the diffusion of the trends. Are trends an object of creative formatting ? - 2020/12
Train-train… Ou la place de la mobilité dans nos quotidiens
Louise Laborde-Castex
Train stations are nowadays becoming a central space in our cities, and a central space in our lives too. The flows of users experience it on a daily basis, we even have a french expression for it : it’s named « train-train » (« train » being the same word in english). The train, in both languages, represents speed, progress, adventure and other symbols. However, our expression echoes to a recurrence, something boring, some kind of deficiency in the daily experience, an attention which prevents the flows that pass through the station every day from getting through. Should the flows define the identity of the train stations ? - 2020/12
