What Brings Us Closer


Élodie Tagnard – Graphic Design / Diploma Session 2021

Human relationships are a complex, ever-evolving subject. While going through several lockdowns, how can we maintain social links at the Martinière Diderot School? By using several precise protocols, we may be able to grasp what is at the core of friendships, connections and affections. From abstract art to diagrams, from small doodles to big murals, each collaborative or participative project is a way to represent the diversity of bonds. But creating specific frames of experiments does not prevent the unexpected from happening, and that is how empathetic, sympathetic design can be developed. Perhaps the most important here was not the images produced, but what they tell us about these moments that brought us closer.
