    Through his project named « Idea Globes », Sylvain Georget explores the relationship between product design and illustration. He is using illustration as a detailed story-telling element, that emphasizes the seven bronzes icons captured within the globes. Using handmade snow globes, it is depicting the chronological construction of an Idea. The globes are freezing up those design moments : from beginning till the accomplishment of a product. With influences as diverse as product design and illustration, new meanings are crafted from both simplicity of relics and richness of details. Through the complexity and richness of the illustrations that is result of long and repetitive practice, the viewer is left with a « mise en abyme » about fantasy of product creation. Read Less

GRADUATION SHOW 
GERRIT RIETVELD ACADEMIE 2014
 
DE GROENE AMSTERDAMMER : Critic by Wieke Bonnier
 
" The most interesting artists in this final exhibition look beyond their own discipline. For example, Sylvain Georget  draws papers full of tiny men and coins with matching  sculptures. During his studies at the Design Lab he got the criticism what exactly was the product he was making ? His graduation presentation shows this criticism hasn’t distracted him from his approach. So there’s hope for a new dawning, being it not for the chance of a prize, then it’s for the emergence of a better discussion in art. Thanks to artists that have a longer breath, go their own way and don’t bother about flowers or a tip for hard work. "
