Exhibition: SUBJECT[ə] Ode to resistance and fight against the everyday

The result of the collaboration between Núria Martínez Vernis, poet, and the Design of Ephemeral Spaces students in the second year of the Bachelor’s Degree in Design, is an exhibition revolving around the object and the subject, the central core of the subject.

Based on the poet’s extensive collection, the students immersed themselves in the sea of possibilities of order, generating four different exhibitions according to the four classes: “I Don’t Want to Buy Clothes Pegs”, “Peter Pincer”, “Journey to the Heart of Objects”, and “SUBJECT[ə]”. Finally, it’s the last one that can be visited until 16 February 2019.

“Subject is one of the fundamental components of a sentence and a syntactic function that is present in most schools of linguistics. It has a relationship of concordance with the verb. Without the verb, the subject is condemned to being and not doing, so every subject is bound to and in eternal need of an action.”

EINA is working with the Gran Teatre del Liceu

Fourth-year students on the EINA Bachelor’s Degree in Design, in the Infographics and Data Display subject, led by Jordi Català, are undertaking a collaboration project with the Gran Teatre del Liceu.

The work consists of creating two Snapshot-type infographics on aspects that the students decide based on the Rossini opera “L’Italiana in Algieri”.

To take on the project, taking into account all its details, the students attended the advance première of the opera production on 11 December.

The collaboration between EINA and the Liceu also allowed last year's Infographics students to undertake work to reinterpret the poster of the works produced by the opera house in the 2017-2018 season, which was highlighted in the “Behind the Curtain” exhibition that was shown at the EINA Barra de Ferro Arts Centre.

Lena Oliveres, special mention in the CoDIC Final Degree Project Awards

Ñire, creation of a social space using waste, the final Bachelor’s Degree in Design project by Lena Oliveres, has won a special mention on the Bachelor’s Degree at the 20th Final Degree Project Awards held by the Catalan Association of Interior Designers and Decorators (CoDIC).

In the awards, presented on 29 November at the Cosentino Centre in Sant Feliu de Llobregat, the jury highlighted the poetic sensation conveyed by the project and the emotional journey it arouses.

Ñire proposes the creation and construction of a space where the people of Ushuaia (Argentina) meet and congregate around a single element: the oven. The space acts as an example and reference point in terms of construction methods based on waste and offers knowledge of the distribution and application of waste depending on the location and external agents.

Participation in the 3rd Design for Life Conference: Functional Diversity, Prosthesis and Cyborgs

Once again this year, as part of the 3rd Design for Life Conference, devoted this year to functional diversity, prosthesis and cyborgs, a presentation will be given of projects by several design schools, including EINA.

Alumni Ruben Sanchez will be presenting the Final Degree Project Trail Running Prosthesis.


"Trail running has caught the attention of lower-limb amputee sportspeople, a handicap which, far from distancing them from this discipline, has motivated them to take up this new adventure with a prosthesis not designed for it.

This was the main reason for proposing the design of a new prosthesis with the characteristics required by mountain terrain and its users. Tacking the project involved looking at how other products work, introducing new materials and systems from other areas, always under the supervision of professionals from this field.

The end result is a proposed prosthesis based on certain key points that make it suitable for trail running, forming the theory behind the creation of prototypes and ensuring that the design evolves in a practical direction".

Lena Oliveres and Anna Vicho, finalists in the CoDIC Final Degree Project Awards

The final Bachelor’s Degree in Design projects by Lena Oliveres and Anna Vicho, students at EINA, are finalists in the 20th Final Degree Project Awards held by the Catalan Association of Interior Designers and Decorators (CoDIC).

Ñire, creation of a social space using waste, the Final Degree Project by Lena Oliveres, proposes the creation and construction of a space where the people of Ushuaia (Argentina) meet and congregate around a single element: the oven. The space acts as an example and reference point in terms of construction methods based on waste and offers knowledge of the distribution and application of waste depending on the location and external agents.

In the area of how design can help in managing emotions, the final project by Anna Vicho, nineteen. The process of grieving over death, is a travelling light installation that deals with the grieving process over death through a journey centred around the theory of psychiatrist Elisabeth Kübler-Ross. This experiential space shows the various states and feelings and is open both to people who have gone through this process and people who have not.

EINA presents "Dispersion of light" in Manresa

  • 17, 18 and 20 February
  • L'Anònima de Manresa (at the end of carrer de la Dama when coming from carrer Joc de la pilota)

EINA's first year Bachelor’s Degree in Design students will present "Dispersion of light", an installation that can be seen at the heart of Manresa's old quarter, within the framework of the Jardins de Llum festival.

The installation came from the students wondering about the phenomenon of the dispersion of light, so intimately linked to its relationship with water, especially in the formation of the divided chromatic spectrum more commonly known as a rainbow.

The project consists of light modules between one and three meters. The centre cube is the core of the installation and a series of extensions of a diverse nature originate from there.

"Dispersion of light" is a project that has been carried out, through the Art, design, and society subject and through the Colour and volume workshop, supervised by Enric Mas, by the following students: Gerard Arbués, Cesc Benavent, Alba Bras, David Cabezas, Pol Capdevila, Andrea Fernández, Violeta Fischer, Claudia González, Maria Emilia Jarrin, Akira Kamata, Julia López, Álex López , Aura Olivan, Alba Mateu, Claudia Navío, Marta Perarnau, Mireia Ruiz, Arnau Salvadó, Iraida Serlavós, Marta Simó, and Mireia Valls.

EINA students present “Fugue” at Llum BCN 2018

  • 16, 17 and 18 February
  • Passatge de la Vinyassa (between Carrer Pamplona and Carrer d’Àlaba in Poblenou), Barcelona

The seventh edition of Llum BCN, the urban light festival for the Festes de Santa Eulàlia, features the participation of students on the EINA Bachelor’s Degree in Design and their project: “Fugue”.

As part of the Digital Creation subject, in the 4th year of the Bachelor’s Degree in Design, led by Santi Vilanova, the students have developed “Fugue”, an interactive audiovisual installation offering a look back at the industrial past of the Poblenou neighbourhood and its current – and growing – appropriation of the heritage.

The students taking part are Elisa Alcaide, Laura Andreu, Mireia Banchs, Abel Bueno, Noelia Cabrera, Sonia Casanova, Maria Cejudo, Miriam Duran, Marina Esbrí, Gabriela Eskenazi, Guillem Expósito, Aina Fontich, Delfina Fraschina, Queralt Guinart, Sarai Herrera, Irene Marcuello, Laura Morales, Laura Niubó, Pilar Osorio, Margarita Pérez, Sergio Rodríguez and Mar Senén.

Fugue

Through a visual musical exercise, based on the formal and conceptual research into visual and sound relationships, it plays with the idea of the musical fugue applied both to sound and image: geometric compositions, repetition, reflection, inversion...

This idea of “fugue” extends to the space, distorting the perception of perspective through the superimposing and repetition of elements that accentuate the fugue point of the very location of the installation, Passatge de la Vinyassa.

The repetition of tulle canvases, which act as video projection screens, allow a play on transparencies and volumetrics to be created. This transparency allows for a dialogue between the real space and the projected image, establishing a relationship between the receptacle (the street) and the content (the image).

The project invites pedestrians to take part in this piece of visual music with the aim of creating a bond between the users and the installation. The aim is for “Fugue” to become an audiovisual instrument that can be played collectively, facilitating interaction not only with the work but between the users themselves.

“Something’s Cooking Here”, participation in the Christmas lighting of shop window displays in Sarrià

Anna Dalmases, Queralt Guinart and Gina Sala, students on the Interior Design of Commercial Spaces subject in the 4th year of the Bachelor's Degree in Design, with Anna Bach, are taking part with their project “Something’s Cooking Here”, in the BCD Barcelona Centre de Disseny initiative, with the support of Barcelona City Council and the collaboration of Eix Sarrià, to revitalise trade on Carrer Major de Sarrià, as part of the Christmas campaign.

The intervention by the EINA students has been at the Cookiteca a cookery workshop-store on Carrer Major de Sarrià, in Barcelona.

This project will see the light on Thursday 30 November at a shop window opening ceremony. Immediately afterwards, there will be a popular vote to identify the most innovative shop window display.

The aim of this action is to innovate in retail shops, and 10 shops and 7 design schools have been invited to create special window displays. The essential idea is that Christmas lights, confined until now to the street, should enter and light up the shop windows and become an essential part of a shop window design project.
