Everything is an experiment.

Design must reflect the practical and aesthetic in business but above all… good design must primarily serve people.
Thomas J. Watson
Good design is about clarity over style, and accountability over indifference.

With the new FB Graph Search, I would like to share this work in progress:

Capsules

Capsule is a family photo data base archive which enables a new experience of navigation, collection, exploration and discovery of the photography collection. The pictures are aligned by type of space, type of event, visual (shape, form, color), age, objects, time, face expression, gesture, and posture.

Capsules is a visualization tool which offers a new form of digital photography collection. It creates meaningful relationships between the photos so that the user can explore unexpected relationships, new connections, and reinterpretations, and discover new narratives of past moments.

What an artist is trying to do for people is bring them closer to something, because of course art is about sharing: you wouldn’t be an artist if you didn’t want to share an experience, a thought.
David Hockney

Partners

Partners is a series of paintings of random users with whom I chat in the Chatroulette platform. While I chatted with people, I captured the screen with their images and printed the frames. Using these frames as references, I drew the portraits in a large scale, using mixed techniques on cardboard. 

The users are not aware of the fact that they were documented and drawn. Moreover, because of the random feature of the platform I have no way to connect them. The only information I have is the exact time of our virtual meeting (time and date) and their image.
