reminiscence pictoIn the context of the 2019 Art & Science Days, this exhibition presents a photographic journey around the two themes of this edition: Déjà vu and Time.

From photo to photo we get to follow the pathway of a look that, from echoes to reflections, is freed, seeks itself and moves forward, towards life, towards love, and all the marvels of this world, seizing the time it is given - before progressively being erased and finally disappearing, in a last tribute to the power of reminiscence and image.


Carole Chollet was born in Blois and currently lives in Nantes.
Since 2012 she has a photo and text blog Chemin des jours.

Sampo - the digital music box

The human being constantly perfections his work tools in all domains. From time to time, he finds a solution so innovative, that it results in a completely new tool. Sampo whose purpose is to change sounds, is a tool dedicated to musicians of all walks. Its development began two decades ago, and due to the constant evolution of technology, it has undergone numerous changes and improvements.

Expo Sampo

Sampo is an innovative instrument of the 21st century whose purpose is to augment the sound capacities of any acoustic instrument. This exhibition brings out the evolution of this innovative instrument of the 21st century. These paradoxical “magical boxes” are a concentration of technology embedded in wooden boxes, decorated in an ancient style, all unique and hand-made by craftsmen. Items designed to be mobile work tools that will free musical creativity.

The exhibition is a tour of the evolution of Sampo since the original idea and the single prototype built in 1997 to the current manufacturing in Saint-Etienne.

This exhibition was initially realized in collaboration with the Ateliers Rue Raisin for the Off du Biennale de Design 2017.
