Year 11 students (vocational training in vehicle maintenance) from the Lycée Gaspard Monge, Savigny-sur-Orge (78), with Hugo Deverchère


How can one go further than what one can see to discover the world?

What we see defines our relationship with the world. Yet, our environment can appear very different if we observe it with tools which challenges the human eye.
Technology can reveal and portray layers of reality that ordinarily elude us, if they even exist at all. 

Our high school is bordered by a river to the south, past which is a park. This park is an open invitation to daydream, looking out of the classroom windows during a lecture. We turned it into our exploration ground. 

Armed with a variety of photography, photogrammetry and infrared imaging tools, we inventoried the plant and mineral forms collected during our humble expedition. Once modelled and revealed in a whole new light, or more accurately in a different invisible light, these forms were assembled to form an image.

Using the cyanotype, an old printing process, we materialised this image. It has become a dreamed landscape: Proxima-tropicalis.
