Caroline Corbasson, PHYSICS, 2022 Video, sound, color, 9 min. Shot between EPFL and the University of Lausanne and produced in collaboration with Jérôme Baudry's Laboratory for the History of Science and Technology (LHST), PHYSICS is a visual tale in five scenes, presenting a range of human relationships. PHYSICS is an evocative exploration, in which the artist places his gaze on the suspended and hidden atmosphere of the EPFL Campus, revealing the mysterious and intimate aspect of relationships that inhabit and characterize it, while making visible the power and presence of its natural landscape. Riccardo Giacconi, Animal, 2023 Video, sound, color, 21min. The inaugural work of the EPFL College of Humanities' Artist-in-Residence (AiR) Enter the Hyper-Scientific program, Animal is a video about the concept of animation, through the simultaneous exploration of former puppet company Carlo Colla & Figli in Milan and the robotics laboratories of EPFL, in order to investigate artistic and scientific questions at the border between man and machine. EPFL's Artist-in-Residence (AiR) program reflects the College of Humanities' mission to foster cross-disciplinary encounters and collaborations between artists and the scientific community, inviting professional Swiss and international artists to residencies of three months to carry out innovative and visionary projects at the intersection of art, science and advanced technologies.
