Tradition and creation • Aestetics

see more
Is there any antagonism between tradition and modernity or, on the contrary, are we are faced with a scale of nuances whose extremities would be tradition and modernity? The 19th century saw the term “modernity” take on another meaning, to be closer to the meaning we use here, adding to the “modern” (current) sense a dimension of “rupture.” We have chosen an example from the field of artistic creation to test these allegations. To do… Lire l'article

Photography and creation • Aestetics

By juxtaposing and exploring the relationship between the terms art photography and manipulation, this article proposes to address a certain visual ambiguity. After revisiting the importance of indiciality, put forth by Charles Sanders Peirce and Rosalind Krauss, relative to new image practices, it aims to reconfirm the place of the creative act in indicial photography. This place has been replaced by the idea of trace or imprint. We will rehabilitate the former, before examining photographic… Lire l'article

Romanticism and creation • Aestetics

see more
This article aims to question the concept of Romantic creation within its historical and philosophical context. A veritable turning point in aesthetics, the rise of Romanticism established the predominant role of the subject in art, and of the autonomous work. For the first time in art history, the classical concept of imitation of nature was deeply called into question, in favor of a philosophical, even mystical investigation of the inner foundations of the creative act.… Lire l'article

Written in the second half of the 19th century, the work of Stéphane Mallarmé immediately and painfully envisaged itself as founded on a crisis of artistic creation, a crisis that the poet has never tried to overcome. He simply wanted to unfold and explore it in order to make it the constantly diverse theme of a form of poetry that reflected on its own practice and made writing the very place and instrument of a… Lire l'article

This article examines the relationship between creation and design.

Redefined from the cultural theory of Bruce Archer, modelling is presented as the fundamental and characteristic creative process of design. Far from being… Lire l'article

The Creation of Data Visualization and Synthesizing Process • Design

Synthesizing skills are in high demand in the 21st century. Educators believe the synthesizing process goes hand in hand with creativity. As a synthetic communication tool, data visualizations such as infographics and word clouds can effectively convey complex information in simplified visual form. Examining samples of data visualizations made by college students, this paper will investigate the relationship between the creation of data visualization and synthesizing skills, as well as address how the creative process… Lire l'article

The text below is like a daydream based on some pictures of sculptors of the late 19th century. Written for an exhibition catalogue, this short analysis is supported by several theories related to the history of the emancipation of female artists. First, one focuses on women who steadfastly claimed their role as an artist. Represented by a painter, sculptor and photographer, they illustrate the artistic gesture, regardless of whether they have a woman's body. They… Lire l'article

In 1937, when he delivered his inaugural address (Discours au Collège de France) as the chair of poetics to the Collège de France, Paul Valéry (1871-1945) broke away from prescriptive poetics by creating the word poietics (poïétique in French) from the Greek poiein (poïein). This essential ï focuses on production by separating it from action (prattein) but also from phusis. What can be seen in all Valéry’s writings is the point of view of the… Lire l'article

Novellisation and creation • Genesis

This article examines the relationship between creation and novelization (i.e. the transposition in fictional form of films and screenplays). It first examines the reasons why novelization is considered “bad taste”, analyzing the institutional, aesthetic, semiotic and practical constraints that seem to stifle the work of the “novelizer.” Secondly, it opposes two ways to position oneself regarding these constraints: refusing them, on one hand, or considering them as a source of inspiration, on the other.

see more
Synthesizing skills are in high demand in the 21st century. Educators believe the synthesizing process goes hand in hand with creativity. As a synthetic communication tool, data visualizations such as infographics and word clouds can effectively convey complex information in simplified visual form. Examining samples of data visualizations made by college students, this paper will investigate the relationship between the creation of data visualization and synthesizing skills, as well as address how the creative process… Lire l'article

Teaching and creation • Socio-political

What goals for what teaching? When the question of teaching screenwriting and film direction is brought up, a host of questions arise: Are we talking about teaching filmmaking in public and private film schools, in primary, middle or high schools, in multidisciplinary universities ... or in continuing education seminars and workshops? Can we imagine teaching screenwriting solely through manuals? (Major books on screenwriting claim to provide rules on dramaturgy, to be applied indiscriminately.) Do we… Lire l'article

Tradition and creation • Aestetics

Is there any antagonism between tradition and modernity or, on the contrary, are we are faced with a scale of nuances whose extremities would be tradition and modernity?

Still, it is clear that they have not yet managed to change traditions that are heavily rooted in a system of male domination based on a dominating and archaic model. This essay intends to analyze, in a heterodox manner, two works of art created by women that denounce violence: a poetic novel by Susana Romano… Lire l'article

Virtual and creation • Technology

see more
While IT now populates many objects of our everyday life, one paradoxically finds it difficult to understand what is the virtual. The creations – for which and in which the virtual (i.e. modelling and programming) is explored –, do not represent the virtual but embody it to finally think or theorize it. The objective of this article is to use some of these creations to understand what they conceptualize and to see the virtual ‘in… Lire l'article
