How would you imagine the island of the dead?

It may be a creepy title but this was how EPAC students were introduced to the first workshop of the year. Artist Philippe Jozelon proposed this mystical theme based on Böcklin's "Ile des morts", literally, island of the dead.

Students worked in teams of four to imagine, design and create their islands using items taken from home before taking photographs of the model to highlight the theme. For the students in the Préparatory class, this was a bigger challenge as it was only their second week at EPAC but it did give all students a great opportunity to get to know each other through this collaboration.

Take a look at the models, see what EPAC students have created and then look at how the atmosphere is enhanced with the use of the right software.
