Homo sapiens are no longer proletarian but cognitarians – Eff Libilbéhéty, Interior Scholarship 2020/2021

To dive into the conscious and unconscious means to fit in society uncovers the fragile balance between the banal and the public. Social appendages, like phones or strategies, are here to lubricate the human’s collision with the external. This liminal space questions the authenticity of each individual and reveals a constraint belonging to the collective. Calling attention to cognitive bias here also relates to how ideology works on a mass of people – because of those human brain’s glitches.

In my second blog post I would like to introduce one smaller project of my autumn semester that took place for 3rd year students at Estonian Academy of Arts.

What is the place of humans in futures societies? How does the dynamics between individual and collective will balance? Western populations face difficulties to maintain current humans’ lifestyle. Let’s talk, or dream, about the decline of European capitalists societies. This sensible experience is irremediable: we are all going to face it, whether you like it or not.

In my first blog post I would like to describe a little bit my 3rd year students main project in autumn semester 2020 at Estonian Academy of arts. For me it stood out from all the previous school projects, due to its complexity and large area for designing.

For this semester, we were assigned to turn a 1911 building in Bucharest into a hotel. The building is located in the heart of the city center, close to one of the oldest parks – Cismigiu Gardens. It used to be called the Palace Hotel, one of the most luxurious hotels in Bucharest of the early 20th century. It is an eclectic construction with neoclassical and art nouveau elements. During the communist regime it changed its name to Hotel Cismgiu, and in 1990 it became the dormitory for the University of Theatre and Film, already in a devastating state of degradation.

Pesamuna / Nest Egg – Karolin Kull, Stipendiatin 2019/2020

This semester I had a chance to work on a personal project. I have had this idea of a small lighting piece idling along in my head for quite some time. It has always been a topic of interest for me as lighting as such has an immense power over how one perceives space.
The idea started forming when I heard about a class that my acquaintance was having. They were working with prototyping and everyone had to use a metal flip switch for their object which then immediately caught my eye. Taking their brief as a starting point I developed my own challenge to work with comfort lighting.

Urban dovecote – Lara Grandchamp, Stipendiatin 2019/2020

This term, I had the opportunity to join a workshop led by a group of researchers who investigate new ways to produce wooden façade using advanced digital tools. I purposefully chose to work on the dovecote for two reasons:

The first one is that, originally, dovecotes had a strong historical statement of local craftsmanship. The second is that I wanted to tackle the problematic of the overpopulation of pigeons in cities and think of a concept that would provide them a safe and healthy place to stay as well as using it to control their population. In short, bringing the use of the dovecote (also called pigeon loft) back to a contemporary and this with the help of a new technology. A perfect fit to this workshop’s tasks.

Noch kurz vor meinem Studienabschluss war es für mich möglich, die neuen Lehrformate, die aufgrund der Coronakrise entwickelt wurden, kennen zu lernen und auch zu testen. Wie fühlt es sich in Zeiten sozialer Distanzierung und Digitalisierung an zu studieren und was hat sich in meinem Leben in den letzten Monaten geändert?
Trotz der offensichtlichen Nachteile der neuen, digitalen Studienformate – unkommunikatives und teilweise auch unpersönliches Arbeiten, Beschränkungen in der Darstellung und Begrenzung in den Materialien sowie Mangel im Austausch zwischen den Studenten – konnte ich für mich selbst einiges Positives daraus ziehen.

Gerade steht alles Kopf. Seit drei Wochen befindet sich unsere Gesellschaft nun schon in einem Ausnahmezustand. Wir sind dazu aufgerufen, zu Hause zu bleiben, den Kontakt zu Freunden und Arbeitskollegen zu vermeiden, einfach abzuwarten, um uns selbst und die Risikogruppe zu schützen.

The semester has begun in a new environment, in Rhode Island School of Design.

One course I take conducts an investigation on human factors, by syllabus “The relationship between the bodies and senses and space in the context of architecture and interior design”. We go to explore how human interaction influences the space by choosing two activities, one for individual and one for collective, and combine them into one monolithic dual artifact.

Working with a sketchbook – something that I do a lot – became my personal point of research and socializing became the collective one.

This term, my group of study is giving a closer look at the eclectic collections of objects gathered over the years by the The Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH).

The Swiss TPH was founded in 1943 by the famous Basler zoologist Dr Rudolf Geigy[1].

Over the years, Dr Geigy and his fellow scientists colleagues have brought back different objects and art pieces from the countries they have stayed in mainly western Africa. These objects have since taken random placed in the TPH’s building, with no particular care in terms of display setup. It was rather amusing to see wooden mask and spires casually hanged beside the printer and the bathroom door!
