Salomé Macquet

The cover announces The taste of waiting and the conversation begins. We discuss time, astrophysics and quantum physics… Soon we run out of words to describe the overwhelming complexity of the universe; language fails us. At that point art, science and speculative design all intertwine. They open up a new dialogue between interfaces, books, installations, algorithms and spectators, helping us examine our relationship with time. The imaginary breaks through. Worlds are unveiled. We exist there in that moment and glimpse a myriad of possibilities. But, looking sideways, the exploration moves on leaving language now the richer. Open infos Open Index


Salomé Macquet (b. 1993) is a French artist and designer. She graduated from the École nationale supérieure des Arts décoratifs in Paris in mid-2016, where she started to draw the concept of time. She now pursues research focused on time and its relationship within physics, political & social sciences through speculative design, graphic design and performance.

In addition to independent research projects, Salomé has been working on commissioned projects for cultural institutions, science & tech companies, architectural firms… Scope includes designing books, websites, identities, typefaces and posters as well as coding websites and algorithms.

Since 2017, she is directing Art faber’s identity and graphic design and is part of the Lab. Arts & Entreprises at the Paris Panthéon Assas University.
