Spatial representation of emotion


...geographic abstraction


Why not bring memories and emotions out from the city into art? The blurry boundary between perception and experience always inspired me: I am interested in the randomness of emotion through art by imaging abstract visuals based on subconscious relations between humankind & urban or natural environments. Guy Debord wanted to «change the city to change lives». In his «Poetics of Space 1», Gaston Bachelard created a philosophy of at-homeness, rich in emotion and memory. As the urban question is at the heart of my art, I bring a poetic dimension to all these landscapes full of unknown connections and spontaneous interactions. From direct experiences, my work delves into the complex undercurrents of intimate and collective relationships to examine contradiction, equilibrium, and harmony in human nature. My process engages with our world and calls upon a sense framework as a construct to bring the viewer inside their own subconscious. What I present in this book is a number of potential spontaneous synergies on different media. This is a master plan through a series of graphic interactions on emotions and thoughts for creating imaginary mindscapes. Philippe

Circular mobility Mobility is a vital part of a thriving urban economy, especially in Circular Economy. In parallel to the urban plan, these principles transform the design of elements within cities. Here is my colorful vision of urban mobility assets.


Building mind maps I imagine our emotional consciousness as a maze. I dream a transit usage of an imaginary network unfolded of people, places and souvenirs. 3

Rethinking unconscious spaces

Time and space 2 are related to our brain which provide us information to ourself, our networks and our world. They build an emotional bridge between humankind and our environment. I imagine a city in transition where the street is no longer a generic conduit, but a place of internal connectivity, inflecting the changing emotions at its boundaries.


Spontaneous mental interactions It is the embodiment of an ideal urban movement system through systematic distortions: you are inside the city’s morphology. I design disaggregated fictive cities which create infinite opportunities for new grids in links and relationships.


Imaginary minsdcapes

The objective is to deepen an art that encompasses both individuals and their emotions into a free, but codified image like a new urban or natural spatial network.

Emotional spine

Cities are now modeled around human needs to deploy our sensations and perception. They are no longer an enclosed organism. Because of the architectural scale around me, I receive and process information from my sense. It’s an exploration of human nature through myself.


People of all ages and abilities experience streets in dierent ways and have dierent needs. Streets connect them with their communities, providing opportunities to meet new people, see friends, and feel socially connected. As sites for daily activities and rituals, streets hold memories of places and events. Each intersection is like a focal point of activity and decision making. I draw new geometries to prioritize only psychological information and to increase the opportunity for unexpected emotional interactions. Streets are multidimensional spaces consisting of many surfaces and structures. A city is a living organism like me: I am full of internal streets and maps, I am my own city and a shift of new consciousness takes place inside of me.

Connecting emotions to the community


Abstract move of an ideal urban system I add collective and personal meanings in architecture details by imaging the shape of invisible cities inspired by our environmental consciousness.

Information ow in cerebral cortex I am obsessed by the pathway of visual informations in the retina, travel to a deep structure within the brain called the thalamus, which then relays signals to the visual area of our brain. 4 I visualize neurons forming an intertwined set of internal connectivity for information processing in the brain.


Influenced by the ‘‘dérive’’ This is the journey through imaginary mindscapes, on which aesthetic contours of the surrounding architecture and geography direct me to encounter a new introspection. It includes both letting-go and its contradiction: the domination of psychocogical variations by the knowledge and calculation of the risks 6 or their possibilities. I explore, understand and create images of time 2 and space in my own emotions to achieve a deep move into my intimate consciousness.

We all are individualized beings intimately connected and cities energize spiritual and human life through a collective unconsciousness.

We all are individualized beings intimately connected and cities energize spiritual and human life through a collective unconsciousness. I retrace our internal connectivity.

Fragmented areas I paint disaggregated worlds to reveal unknow moves into our consciousness. I break the armature of our networks to change geometries to prioritize psychological information.

ReconďŹ gure the network I am a unique piece of the collective psychology but I like to break up existing structures and create disaggregated schemes. I imagine cognitive maps to navigate into an inexistent geography of a city all in changing my own mental topography.
