ARC paysage - a week in Le Havre

I had the chance to be one of the students chosen for a one week study trip in Le Havre (sunday 20.03. - friday 25.03.2011). We were chosen by our projects we presented (written) weeks before the trip. Here some pictures of this open, geometrical and new city at the ocean. (selected Google Earth pictures) (pictures taken with a Canon EOS except the two first ones)  For my project, I wanted to work on these strange and nearly surreal forms seen from above. Thank you p.e.  Laura,        ... [Lire la suite]

continuing to train myself...

I got to improve my technique, so I did one two things after each day of Videoformes's internship. - A tiny molding exercise I did this evening, I just finished the second side of the four sides this evening (the bottom will be the casting/molding opening in the final printing). I will do the two other sides tomorrow- err... no, today.  (it's 01:03 a.m. already!)   - And another mold with whom I will do a mask with a material I discovered at Videoformes' internship : It is easy to manipulate, you get a beautiful smoth...

Flo goes "Festivals"!

It was a great and really productive day! Well, the others too, but this one was a little special ^^ First thing : I finally had a really great English seminar for a long time now. It was so great to speak english with French without them looking at me as if I were crazy or snobbish acting up in front of them.The greatest is that they give us the possibility to pass an internationally recognised exam! (yeah, recognised with an s, I try to speak British English! XD) Not only that the teacher to exercises with us and prepares us to pass... [Lire la suite]

Much more than 'Court-Métrage'...

I just had the best day for a long time!!! (Not the fullest, I had several times two days in a row without going home! O_ o")Just when I thought I should go home (to prepare the translation for the director's presentations tomorrow at my art school - EDIT : in the end, I translated both directors ^^°) I couldn't leave; we went to a bar to drink and eat, then to a great Rock 'n' Roll live show, then when I finally got on my way home I met James with whom I had a great chat ^^Thank you so much all the people I met who were just so...

Here some pictures of the past three days. This workshop was really enriching and very interesting!The artist, Frank, who taught us all these things was joking with us all the time, but he was always there for a dozen of students! Really remarkable, I'm really thankful I had the chance to participate.Transform my body's shape by first molding my hands. These are for two different projects : I didn't care their look so much, they are the base for other constructions (animalic hands, Popeyearms etc). He did my left hand, I did the... [Lire la suite]
