Replica Makes It Better

PRESENTED ON MAY 30, 2018
IN TOKYO @ VOL 157

French artist Hervé Humbert reproduces preexisting “classics” from design, architecture and art history. In his process of building a replica, he engages in a dialogue with the object, traces and manually repeats what is visible in the model. He interprets the precursor by his selection of materials and sizes, by transposing details and contexts, making everything, wherever possible, by hand. The replica is only identical to its precursor at first glance. It becomes an industrially unrepeatable unique through subjective perception and Humbert's specific handwriting.

フランス出身のアーティストHervé Humbertは、デザインや建築、美術史などに見られる既存の「古典」の新たな表現方法に挑戦しています。複製をつくる過程で、対象物と対話し、原型から見えてくるものを手作業でなぞることを繰り返しています。素材やサイズの選択、またディテールや文脈を置き換えることを通じて対象を読み込み、可能な限り全てを自身の手で制作しています。こうして制作される「レプリカ」が、対象と同一に見えるのは初めのうちだけ。作者の主観と固有の手つきから生まれる作品は、工業的に反復不可能な、唯一無二の存在となっています。

Better Than Ridley Scott?!!

BY JONATHAN GALES
@ VOL 11 ON JUN 16, 2016

"A building is more architectural in the process of constructing itself than it is as a monument to the inhabitation that it then follows."

In Better Than Ridley Scott?!! from PechaKucha Night London Vol. 11Jonathan Gales shares some of his wonderful digital creations that focus on future cities. Gales is an architect and the creative director and co-founder of Factory Fifteen. His real passion is for design and visual storytelling using film, animation and visual effects. As you will see, he not only has a passion, but he has serious talent!! You will see for yourself that the images Jonathan produces are truly amazing.

Darren Proulx, Urban Planning Engineer with Slow Streets, explains how to start thinking about snow as less of a nuisance and more of a tool for cities— and how we can use it, literally, as a building block or even a guide to designing better public spaces.
