Can designers act in a social context ?
To answer this personal question, I spent several hours every week in Tonkin, a working-class area, alongside other students, to create solidarity actions with the inhabitants.
Then, through a collective work, a fresco that allows everyone to express themselves, relationships were built, exchanges were created. These colors placed on the wall are the symbol of a meeting point of the inhabitants. They reflect shared attendance, discussions, attentions for the others, they form a graphic element of the neighbourhood.
Driven by the moving bodies of the inhabitants, this colorful identity seeks to come alive, emancipate itself, fly away. Fragments of the fresco disperse and resonate between the walls of the buildings. Snippets of this formal and colorful lexicon escape, gradually distancing themselves from the district of Tonkin. This project is about mutual support, constant dialogue, a common experience of making things happen together.
