Compulsive collection v5


Coding / Edition project

Partnership with Béjart Ballet

Compulsive collection is a series of coded books. A software called Processing was used in the making of the books instead of using the regular tools such as indesign. It is a book made out of code. The fifth collection’s subject is Béjart Ballet, a dance company in Lausanne, Switzerland.

My project’s main subject was « back ». The back of dancers is one of their strongest points, a solid structure that allows them to open up the body and widening it. They create strong silhouettes. In a minimalist approach, I decided to only show the dancer’s backs on each spread to in the 740 pages of the book. The book has become a dictionary about the shapes that backs create while dancing.
