Station Lights is a luminary installation specially made for the Gare du Châble train station.
This project is the result of a course led at ECAL/Ecole cantonale d’art de Lausanne by Angelo Benedetto, Vincent Jacquier and Pauline Saglio.
The technical development and production was entrusted to SIGMASIX, a studio started by ECAL graduates, who produce interactive installations in Switzerland and the rest of the world.
Le content displayed on the installation was made by students of the 2nd year Media & Interaction Design Bachelor: Antoine Barras, Maya Bellier, Pablo Bellon, Ivan Chestopaloff, Bastien Claessens, Guillaume Giraud, Léonard Guyot, Evan Kelly, Lisa Kishtoo, Kylan Luginbühl, Alice Nimier, Paul Léon, Aurélien Pellegrini, Yaël Sidler and Diane Thouvenin.
SIGMASIX is a Geneva - based experimental studio combining a large spectrum of practices with a focus on lighting design, scenography, museography, mechanical effects and installations. Each project is seen as a new take on existing technologies, interactive strategies, and a new opportunity to merge techniques and art to offer unique and exceptional experiences.
As a practice SIGMASIX is in a constant search for magic and poetry obtained by allowing alien technologies cohabit together. The studio’s ambition is to repurpose technologies to spaces and objects. It does so with an extraordinary capacity in integrating technicalities to the point of dilution where perception breaks down to the core of the concept.
Initiated in 2004 by Swiss artists Eric Morzier and Florian Pittet, SIGMASIX works both on art and research projects as much as commercial and consulting ones. Today, the studio has a small team and works with a vast network of freelancers and interns to make sure all project and ideas are aligned with each and every client’s needs.
