VOLUME WORKSHOP

This workshop houses a set of tools and machines for the production of three-dimensional forms. Starting from their plans and with the participation (or assistance) of faculty members and the workshop director, students realize their sculpture in the material of their choice: wood, iron, composites, etc.

Workshop directors :
JEAN-MICHEL BERTRAND, DAVID COUSINARD

SOUND WORKSHOP

Recording, editing, mixing, post-production synchronization with images, sound installations, performance, on-site editing techniques, listening sessions, sound creation, sound restoration, and more. The studio’s activities vary with the demands of student projects. A large part of its work involves post-production synchronization of sound and image (sound editing, voice-off recording, dubbing, sound effects and music, stereo and multi-channel mixing) for film and video. The studio’s other major activity is musical production: recoding, editing, mixing. For many years the studio has been a member of the Ircam Forum, which enables students to use and be trained in the latest software developments.

PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

The photography workshop houses a complete set of production and post-production equipment that is fully compatible with and complementary with the other workshops and the school’s pedagogical approach. Students have full access to the equipment under the supervision of the workshop director.

SILK-SCREEN AND PRINT WORKSHOP

At first glance this workshop would seem to be the place where a finished piece of photographic or graphic art is printed after being planned elsewhere. Experience tells us, however, that it is closer to a place where questions are asked about what is possible. To bring a project to fruition, time is required to analyze images, the data behind them, and the capacities of the technologies being deployed. Finding solutions and helping students realize their vision as closely and accurately as possible are the missions of this workshop. And they explain its constant exchanges with the photography workshop.

VIDEO WORKSHOP

Workshop director :

PUBLICATIONS WORKSHOP

Art books, reviews, portfolios, theses, and catalogues—the publications workshop is where a wide variety of editorial projects come together, from conception to finished product. Publications are produced in single or multiple copies as collections of images, texts, drawings, and works by multiple contributors.

DOCUMENTION CENTER

The documentation center houses approximately 13,000 works, some 60 periodicals (some of which may be checked out), and nearly 1,000 audio and audio-visual recordings (DVD, VHS, CD, audiobooks), as well as the DNSEP theses of ENSAPC students since 2011. The documentation center is part of the BEAR network of art school libraries. Consistent with the school’s instructional focus, its holdings are specialized: monographs and other writings by artists; exhibition catalogues; technical work on the plastic arts, film, digital art, photography, and so on; and books on the history of art and aesthetics. ENSAPC strives to deepen its holdings on contemporary art and to circulate publications on emerging artists.

Two computer stations are available for use by visitors, one of which is reserved for bibliographic research. A photocopier is available at the entrance to the center; reasonable restrictions apply to its use. A viewing area allows visitors to view video and multimedia resources, notably those that cannot be checked out.
