Bridging to Physical – 3 Projects by Lara Defayes

Created by Lara Defayes at ECAL / Bachelor Media & Interaction Design, UV MapVanishing Shades and FOMO Survival Kit are a series of project produced during her studies at the art and design school in Lausanne, Switzerland. All three projects, and others that can be viewed on her website, explore the contradictions and opportunities of digital in physical.

UV Map is an experimental printing project. Taking the roots in cyanotype technique (applying  photosensitive solution to fabric), UV Map allows printing in a three-dimensional space via a contactless laser system. As the laser is directed at the fabric, it "paints" lines revealing the topography of the fabric. The project was supported by Yuki Machida, Research Assistant from the EPFL+ECAL Lab.
