What is Punctum ?

Martin Meurin, Victor Miellin and I, Vassili Glezos are design students at e-artsup, a french design school based in Paris. We are all three of us in our fifth and last year of study in interaction design.

Punctum is the answer to a subject given by Félicie d’Estienne d’Orves, a french artist who happens to be one of our teacher.

The COP21 will take place in Paris, starting the 30th of November. This event is crucial because its goal is to conclude a global agreement to limit the rise in global temperatures to 2°C compared to pre-industrial times.

Our subject was to create an object or installation in order to raise awarness about climate issues. We knew from the start that we didn’t wan’t to do something guilt-inducing, instead we wanted to touch people, to be able to feel the beauty and the fragility of nature.

So, in this blog you will see the developpement of the project, our reflexion and our creation.
