In November at the Fondation des Treilles
« Growth, Patterning and scaling during development » organized by Jean-Paul Vincent (FSER).
The meeting will bring together, developmental biologists, mathematicians, evolutionary biologists, and human geneticists to explore the mechanisms ensuring that perfectly proportioned organs are reliably formed. The discussions will focus on growth termination as well as on the coordination between patterning and growth.
Author’s Residency Prize
Eddie Breuil is pursuing the three-month residency he has been awarded for writing an essay entitled « A Beam in the Eye ». The approach adopted is a critique of the phenomenology of art; was the work of Roger Caillois and Henri Meschonnic sufficiently measured? This free essay leads to a defense and illustration of the art of seeing, reading and hearing.
Photography Residency Prize
Clément Chapillon will come back for his documentary work on the Amorgos island. In the continuation of his project “Promise Me a Land” in Israel / Palestine, this island territory is explored: the island of Amorgos located in the heart of the Aegean Sea and which represents to him both a kind of catharsis and the heart of the Mediterranean soul. His testimony will question the identity of its inhabitants, their way of life, and try to differentiate myth and reality.
