ENTRE CIEL ET TERRE

console 

for Aequo Edition

“Entre Ciel et Terre”  means “Between Heaven and Earth”. The project has been design for Aequo Edition, the aim is to tell stories of the northern region of France trough poetic objets.

Here the project refers to the flatland of the region between black soil and grayish sky. Without wishing to emulate the uncontrollable nature, the “Entre Ciel et Terre” console suggests it in a simplistic way by its shape, in a symbolic way by its materials, and thus leaves some space for the user imagination and appropriation.

“Autrefois extraites des mines

précieuses pépites ébène

depuis se sont enracineés

au fond des abîmes les chênes

veilleurs inflexibles des galeries délétères

Leur cime transperçant le couvert d’albâtre

rien ne semble arrêter les frênes

ni même le temps, ni même le ciel de traîne

Tandis qu’à l’intérieur le fruit du labeur

se dépose en strates scintillantes au soir venu

récolte vivante d’amour, d’espoir

de toutes formes et de toutes les couleurs.”

Saint-Huître             

“Formerly mined

precious ebony nuggets

since have taken root

in the depths of the abyss the oaks

inflexible watchmen of the deleterious galleries

Their crowns piercing the alabaster

nothing seems to stop the ash trees

nor even the weather, nor even the skies

While inside the fruit of labor

settles into twinkling strata at night

living harvest of love, of hope

of all shapes and colors. ”
