OVER & UP

Establishing a process










Designing a mould-piece

I'm now working on a family of elements - stool, table side, shelving unit...
creating micro architectures based on the over pouring process and the upside down emergent surface. Between a controlled element - the mould - and a less controlled one - pouring - I'm exploring the technique's possibilities in terms of materials and applications.

TABLE LEG - LEG TABLE





For the 'work in progress show at the RCA' in december, I used the opportunity to create an extra table surface in over pouring a table leg to then turn it upside down - the table leg is used as a sacrificial mould. 'The drop that makes the jar overflow' quote I chose to do a poster, expresses the idea of having heavy consequences out of details.

OVER POURING crisis

Emergence follows emergency


This experience demonstrates how to take advantage of the outflow. Turned upside down, an additional surface emerges.

Experimenting

I started to explore the relation between a container and its content, and what is happened when the content goes over the mould. I then integrated the idea of damaging the mould to create holes, cracks and so on, in order to provoke a crisis and play with it.

Looking at holes


In parallel, I looked at holes on walls - observation made with Olivia Descaris during Daniel Eatock's workshop at the RCA - their different purpose, shape and implication. Depending on its size and its location, a hole can lead to minor towards major crisis.

Understanding the crisis


Most of crisis' triggers can be based on the notion of quantity - less water, not enough trust, more conflicts, too much of...

RUSH BAG


Rush bag echoes our impulsive behaviour within the tiny daily crisis of looking for something in a bag. Turn it upside down to expose its contents.
