depot_baselNET-WORK asked Romain Cazier, interactive designer, who is interested in the influence of the digital world over the “real” one based on Twitter likes that he used as bookmarks, to interfere with the contemporary design discourse from his own perspective on our Instagram account #networkdepotbasel @romaincazier #romaincazier #interactivedesign #media #twitter #vimeo #swissnex #virtualreality

[like.mp4] Hey everyone, @romaincazier speaking ! I'm pleased to be your host for a week✌🏻 When asked for posting content, I turned to my Twitter likes which are somehow extensions of my memory. I've gathered a few images/videos about the influence of the digital world that have either made me smile or left a strong mark on me. Hope you'll like it. (being in San Francisco, my posts will appear quite late on the Swiss side) #romaincazier #depotbasel #placeforcontemporarydesign #depotbaselnetwork

[virtual_reality_01.mp4] I found interesting the use of a physical device to take a digital picture of a VR performance.

About the format

Since its formation in 2011 Depot Basel has aimed to encourage and open up up the ongoing discussion about contemporary design. The most recent initiative in this endeavor is Net-work: a format where we invite designers, non-designers, theorist and practitioners to use our Instagram- account to interfere with the contemporary design discourse from their own perspective on our Instagram we are extending our methods to do so.
