Sympoetique group show @ EPFL, Lausanne

28 February 2023

OOZE participates to the group show at the EPFL , « SYMPOÏÉTIQUE

The ecological culture occupies a growing place in the design of the current city. It constitutes the pivot from which it is possible to elaborate new ways of looking, of proceeding and of operating, producing a set of arts of doing “in” and “for” the ecological city.

Sympoietic is formed by the Greek ποίησις/poíēsis, “ work, creation, manufacture ” and the prefix σύν/sún “ with ”, “ together ”. Poíēsis relates to the study of the potentialities imbeded in a given situation, paving the way to a new creation. The sympoietic is therefore a fusional doing, a doing with or together. A doing that would not be the autonomous affirmation of a vision, but the revelation of potentialities or the explanation of an existing not yet revealed.

Moving from a logic of autonomous objects to related objects opens up new perspectives on interfaces, forms and processes. Organized around these three chapters, the exhibition shows how ecological culture can colour, inform and renew the culture of the project.
