For their residency, the 3 graphic designers of the Terrains Vagues collective have adopted the acronym “BAM!”, which for this academic year 2015/2016 will be “Bouloie en Agitation Maximum! »
The entire graphic design of BAM! is entrusted to them. With the idea of surprising campus users, Elsa, Marisol and Ambre opted for an efficient, simple graphic design, one colour per studio and a display… massive and “parasitic” in order to announce BAM! in a thunderous way!
BAM! is a cycle of participatory artistic residencies that question the uses of the Bouloie in Besançon. For its 3rd edition, 2 artist collectives are taking over to propose different ways to invest campus space by involving students, professionals and residents in new uses.In order to enhance the biodiversity there and strengthen the links between the campus and people who work and study there,the Groupe Naturaliste of the University of Franche-Comté (GNUFC) wanted to create a path of discovery and interpretation on campus site of La Bouloie.Their idea meets the motivations of BAM! they worked together with the Bivouac workshop and the Collectif bim!
“Our vacant lots are spaces to build, areas of graphic creation, meeting areas, intersecting fields and places of all possibilities.” After obtaining a master’s degree in graphic design and visual didactics at the “Haute École des arts du Rhin”, Marisol, Elsa and Ambre founded Atelier Terrains Vagues in July 2014. The complementarity of the collective with their knowledge and skills, gives it a field of broad action and a variety of views. They are committed to creating strong, colorful and lively images. Sensitive to the printed object, their goal is also to raise public awareness of the plastic practice and the graphic image by designing and supervising workshops. Both fun and educational, they allow them to move away from an elitist graphics by highlighting the human encounter and the sharing of knowledge.
