Invited by its Director Marva Griffin to the 15th anniversary of the SaloneSatellite, on the theme “Design Technology”, the ECAL presents an installation by Christophe Guberan, a third-year Bachelor student of Industrial Design. “The idea is to give shape to paper through the simple use of water, adapting an existing printer to control the phenomenon. This experimental approach allowed me to explore new avenues of research,” explains Christophe Guberan. Indeed, this project is based on a totally new experimental process which, using a printer, a simple sheet of tracing paper and water, creates a transition from 2D to 3D, generating tiny volumes in just a few minutes.
