Episode 3. Pauline

During the first confinement with my sister, we took a daily rhythm that was very pleasant. We woke up quietly, we did what we had to do, we ate lunch together. In the evening we watched an episode. We would do weight training on certain days. We had created our life in his studio. It was very, very pleasant.

Bio

I am an experimental product designer. Through a daily rhythmic of observations, unconsciously I archive my inspirations in a series of sketches and photographs creating my plastic and formal vocabulary: materials, colors, transparencies, reflections, shadows and lights. By hand I sculpt, work, experiment with one or more materials (raw, industrial, recomposed, reused). My artistic sensibility guides my research towards textures, materials and forms in interaction with shadow, light and colors. Depending on the materials used, my production varies between handcrafted self-production and collaborations, allowing me to achieve creations often described as fragile and ephemeral functional art objects. (Projects produced locally from reused materials and with an ecological concern).

Excerpts of the conversation

At the end of the 1st confinement “I had just finished this internship and it was the right time for me to ask myself questions about what to do next, about what I wanted to do. I was able to take the time to ask myself all these questions, I was able to take the time to start drawing again, I also took the time to make projects”.

On the first confinement “I have a good memory of it. Because it allowed me to recreate links with my sister. Finally to create more bonds with my sister because we didn’t see each other very often, that was really great.”

“I was dealing with what was around me, I was using less.”

“During the first confinement with my sister, we took a daily rhythm that was very pleasant. We woke up quietly, we did what we had to do, we both ate lunch together. In the evening we watched an episode. We would do weight training on certain days. We had created our life in his studio. It was very, very pleasant.”

“My sister teaches online yoga classes, I try to take them twice a week, and that’s because of the rhythm we had during the first lockdown.”

“I’m more of a control freak, I want to do everything right the way I planned it. The two lockdowns on top of that have really messed up my routine. It’s leading me to let myself go a little bit more. That’s a good point, because I think you have to let go a little bit every day to grope your way through.”
