ECAL students were prompted during a workshop to build an apparatus that created videos under new conditions.
A group of students at ECAL, the art and design school in Switzerland, were prompted to build camera devices to produce never-before-seen videos. In response, these young inventors created products like a water-filled translucent sphere to shoot underwater images above water and on dry land, and a device that attaches to a hat to capture footage as it swings around the photographer.
The one-week workshop, led by the Dutch designer Roel Wouters, saw a number of projects realized by the students in Media & Interaction Design in collaboration with Industrial Design students. Their brief was to “build an apparatus that produces videos the world has never seen before”. You can check out their innovative creations in the video below:
