#29 – Emmanuel Tibloux and Samuel Tomatis: Designing rural worlds

The Foundation renews its support of the Festival Agir pour le Vivant (August 2023, Arles) and is organizing three encounters “Creators facing Climate Emergency” as part of the “Conversations à ciel ouvert” cycle, available as audio podcasts on the website and on listening platforms.


How can we become one with the earth? How can we conceive of a body of water and earth whose relationship to the ecosystem is defined through creation?

Emmanuel Tibloux, Director of the École des Arts Décoratifs de Paris, and promoter of the Post-master Design des mondes ruraux, an ENSAD program in the Dordogne dedicated to the development of rural territories through design, talks to designer Samuel Tomatis, who is constantly pushing back the potential of algae, about a bio-design through which living beings, human and non-human, help and regulate each other in a reciprocal way.
