"ABCDESIGN", you know what it’s all about, you’re right in it ! Here in France everyone is working on creating his own ABCderaire. Though this is a typical work of classical applied research but everyone will agree on these facts : review your typographic fundamentals and improve 3D skills...it’s all good ! What’s new : Virginijus in Lithuania has decided to stay involved by proposing a new project that everybody seems to like a lot. Write to each other truly and using our writings to send letters. "Lettre à un ami" is the starting point.

THE PROJECT INSPIRED BY VIRGINIJUS IN LITHUANIA

Everyone writes a letter to one friend, of course Czech, Spanish, French, Estonian or Lithuanian and...you wait for the reply. Carmen in Spain replies to the original with adding up to the original topic, she will send the first Spanish versions via internet.

MEANWHILE IN THE FRENCH BEEHOUSE

We will be highly stimulate in our writing styles by author Corrine Lovera Vitali, who will advise and explain on how to confirm in our decisions. The vision of the initial romantic letter will eventually be boosted but it’s true that there are so many writing styles, ways of communicating on the web, sending each other text messages or messages or mobile phones... We will know how to show our friendship and affection. The French version of the "letter" will be presented as a short film in video : sound and movement in a couple of minutes. 2, 3 or 4 should be enough. Conclusion... to take a result of that work to Beckyne (Czech Republic) in April, we’ll have to be quick and efficient, concise as everything will be translated "image by image". Roughly : 15 days of line-writing in a "ping-pong" way on an idea by Corinne Lovera Vitali and 15 days of multimedia graphics on the go.

PROJECT MEETING IN BECKYNE FROM APRIL 6TH TO 11TH

Some raw and instinctive work to take to Breckyne. No moving back : the appointment is fixed from the 6th to the 11th of April 2008. During the meeting of the project all the nations groups will make propositions of answers to the "letter" sent by other friends (ES/SP/LT/CZ/FR). In the heart of workshop at the Czech School of Ceramic, the 15 students of the delegations will continue the writings "in situ" to make things move forward. But there... mystery. And it’s in that mystery that we will read the future : Biennale of Echirolles, FIFAV Festival, the fall Franco-Czech meeting "Demain en main" with the ZARZAS (oct. 2008), Comenius meeting at Druskininkai in Lithuania. The idea is to do only one writing, final creation at the unison like the book already was a year ago (that integrated so well the particularism of several nations)

THE FIFAV, YES BUT WHY ALWAYS AT THE SAME TIME ? THE CORUM IN MONTPELLIER IS HAPPENING ON THE 4TH, 5TH, 6TH OF APRIL ET WE WILL HAVE TO DIVIDE THE TROUPS.

The scenario, let’s already think about it...of the film to present at FIFAV festival can contain the creations but also the makings-of these workshops in the Ceramic Workshop of Beckyne. The southern bohemia, its School of Ceramics, the oldest in the country. Marta, I am pretty sure that we will leave you filled with wonder with the envy of showing your passion for ceramics ! The "Zarzas" workshop in fall will extend the experience and will permit to tightened our links while putting the finishing touches to our creation.

"ITICA LYON" from April 12th to 13th 2008 at the Cité Scolaire Internationale.

This new edition ITICA ( seminar of formation for teachers, in the agreements signed by the ministry of Education and Apple for the generalisation of TIC users) is attracting us. This is a meeting you can’t miss. But who’s going ? Will we still be alive after Montpellier and the trip to bohemia ?
