Special Issue 13

Tense Motion V3 - Martin Foucaut

RESEARCH BOARD + TENSE INTERPRETATION + VISUAL IDENTITY



For the Special Issue 13, I interpreted the essay TENSE (2018) by Simon(e) van Saarloos. With my interpretation, I amplified the author’s discourse on descriptive language by exaggerating the use of meta-descriptions through the form of HTML-tags. Normally, a HTML <tag> acts as a descriptive container, it is invisible for Web-user point of view as it is only made to be read and interpreted by the computer in order to arrange the structure of the Web-page

By looking for ways to make these meta tags visible and readable from a Web-user’s point of view, I affect the reader’s interpreation of the essay and also perception of the document accessed. Additionally to the Web, I made my three HTML documents (essay, artistic response and map) printable from the Web and included them in the Special Issue 13 book.

As part of the design team of the Special Issue 13, I collaborated with two XPUB1 students to make the project’s visual identity, including the making of Web-to-print documents such as the blank map; bookcover and colophon.

RESEARCH BOARD + LAUNCHER + FOLDER INTERFACES
+ VISUAL IDENTITY



For the Special Issue 14, I wished to explore, detect, and implement unconsidered Web events and situations in my own pinball game. Later on, this work evolved into a city-based pinball game, eventually becoming the publication’s launcher page. This launcher page allows the user to find coordinates of local Wi-Fi networks located within the city of The Hague.

In addition to the launcher, I created a series of pinball inspired folder interfaces. Each of them allow visitors, who are connected to one of the local Wi-Fi network locations, to access content created and shared by XPUB1 students. This content can be games, texts or codes embedded within compositions of clickable pinball bumpers.

In order to connect the launcher page with a total of five folder interfaces as part of a more unified navigation and visual system, I was working in the design team of the Special Issue 14 with three other students and together we assembled the project’s visual identity.
