The context

Their request is to create a place of creativity, a place where they could play and listen to music, watch films, invite creators, musicians or actors from the world of the arts..... pointdefuite proposes to ask Nicolas Floc'h to create a work that meets their commission. This artist designs for them two giant enclosures to be built on the school grounds.

The commission

Nicolas Floc'h's answer is twofold : In the first phase, he proposes 3D images of the project. Then he decides with the students to create a sculpture that is the model of the project on a scale of 1/10°. A DVD is created with the students that describes the entire commissioning process. A possible second phase will be the in situ construction of the sculpture.

Nicolas Floc'h

Nicolas Floc'h, born in 1970, lives and works in Paris. Fascinated by transformation cycles and adept at collaborative work, Nicolas Floc'h produces modular structures, which he then submits to the public or other creators likely to reactivate them.
