My master thesis belongs to a collection of three thesis dealing with inter-species relationships and alterity.
Realised under the collective Anima, this collection is presented in the form of a wooden box, cut and engraved with laser cutter.
Talking about relations between humans and non-humans, and working in a collaborative way, it was essential to visually spotlight this link. Therefor, our cover represent a triptych revealed by the box. set.
The summary is built inside a rectangle used in the overall layout of the memory. Putting forward the three parts of research, it shows the different levels of titrations and their typography. We chose to use the Din Pro, a modern font for the titles, in oppositon to a more classical one for the current text. We chose to print our thesis on a recycled paper.
We wanted an elegant and classic layout reminiscent of naturalistic works. The page layout is based on symmetrical rectangular inserts which give aeration. The integration of images is always done on an entire page to put them forward. The integration of notes cutting the main text counteracts the classic aspect with a contribution of modernity.
In order to highlight some citations or sentences of the text, these are used at the location of the images.
Header and pagination are asymmetrically sided positioned to bring a balance to the double page, always in the idea of counterbalancing the classic aspect of the book.
For my master thesis, I interested in the construction of
the concept of nature in Western thought
before comparing it to other cultures.
I wondered if and how design could evolve our paradigm in order to change course in the face of the announced ecological catastrophe and look for other possible futures.
