Diploma project, ECAL 2018


by Thaddé Comar

“Mai 2018” is an investigation into the relationship between the media system and activist events. Fifty years after the events of May 1968, the beginning of 2018 saw the birth of a willingness to join forces and to oppose the reformist intentions of the government. Presented as a package, this project includes different types of images and symbols highlighting various formats, languages and aesthetics. Media elements come alive, various pieces of information converge, temporality is distorted into a reality shifting between transparency and opacity.
