ABSTRACT: :Inspired by the work of Raphaëlle de Groot on the accumulation of objects, I would like to begin a reflection on the idea of accumulation and trails through a bas-relief collage project. Through a brainstorming of ideas, observational drawing, I will invite students to identify the objects that accumulate around them. We will then proceed to practice observational drawing techniques, gouache painting as well as paper shaping. Finally, the final assembly will include a pencil self-portrait test on which will be affixed their material and plastic disorder.

Question: What are the traineries that clutter my daily life? What impact do material drags, objects and consumption have on my person or my living environment?
