    FLOATING INCH


    Our site is at the end of the Laviau track, and at the exit of the small Harbour. We found our site at first sight because it was the junction between the ground and the lake. We approached to the junction of the two different environment (the dirt and the water), and we saw a little rock that was in between the ground and the lake. We then decided to measure this rock. The thing was that the rock was both on top the water and in the water, so we decided to measure only the apparent part of the rock. For that, we used little ropes that were attached to the grid on their top and that fell on the rock at their bottom.

    Then we made the mold, in cardboard, of the rock that we measured. Then we made the rock in plaster at a scale of 1:3.

        The next step was to make an element. 

    To do that, we thought about the reasons that made us like this site. And directly we both talked about the junction between the water, with its dynamic movement, and the ground with its stability. So we decided to build an inch that could both represent a movement and a fixe part. We thought about building a structure around the rock, and at its extremity would be fixed some inches that had a part which was moving. 

    We made different sized inches, and we thought of a huge inch that could hold a person. The person would be able to sit on the inch and feel the movement of the water, even though he was attached to the ground.
