, we assisted to Emmanuel Eggermont’s new creation Aberration at the ADC.

Emmanuel Eggermont takes us on a beautiful journey through multiple shades of white, painted with light remnants and refractions. Aberration is a journey through a collection of random emotions fading one into the other.

It begins slowly on a slow beat, but soon you are taken in and start to experience a range of mixed feelings from switching contexts : moral, religious, social or even economic.

aberration
a departure from what is normal, usual, or expected, typically an unwelcome one.
or
the failure of rays to converge at one focus because of a defect in a lens or mirror.

It’s very esthetic and the overall white provides a vivid contrast to the emotional colours expressed. I was wholeheartedly taken into his world and the flow of emotions he shared with us. I didn’t see the time go by. Don’t miss it if you are reading this early enough…

Playing at the ADC in Geneva until Sunday January 19th, 2020.

  • Apple’s string of disturbing decisions

    Apple, and especially the Macintosh, have played a key role in my professional career since the late 1980. Their attention to detail, alongside with an ethical and user centered approach fascinated me, but the recent string of Apple decisions disturb me.

So, we are off to South East Asia again. This might be the last time (or not) Emma comes with us. Mathias is off to Myanmar solo, and to Indonesia with Célia this Summer, so we decided to explore Cambodia, eventhough it’s the wet season.
