Research residency at FABLAB/EISINE in Charleville-Mézières

During the 2019-2020 university season, the Yôkaï company and URCA (Université de Reims Champagne Ardenne) partner up to build a research and outreach program. With the support of SUAC and the FABLAB of Charleville-Mézières, the company’s artists will be in residence at FABLAB and involve 6 EISINE (Industrial and Digital Sciences School of Engineering) students in researching materials, robotics and digital technology aspects. Their objective is to achieve the best effects (fluidity and reliability) sought by the artistic team, which works on illusion and the confusion of the spectator’s perception

Participants include students working towards an Engineering Sciences and “Design and materials shaping process” (CPMFM) bachelor’s degree.

The project was led by Violaine Fimbel, Artistic director and Marjan Kunaver, puppeteer and automation engineer

Faculty team:

Celine SIMON, Professor, Supervisor of the CPMFM Bachelor

Raphaël Moulart, Research Professor, Supervisor of the CPMFM Bachelor

Vincent MARQUET, Research Engineer in industrial automation/ fast prototyping
