the  blood as a concept of research in the nourishment of the body and the soil

Following the writing of my thesis "Sanguinaire 2.0", "Analogy" is a prospective project born from a research work around blood, its genesis and its role through the body, then from an analogical study between body and territory.  

Highlighting the similarities in the functioning of the human body and the geographical territory has made it possible to observe analogies between the blood network and the watercourse that would come to the image of blood, irrigate an entire territory with nutrients and trace elements, between the intestine and earth, both supports the internal microbiota or even between organ and plant, reservoir of energy transmitted by a whole system of irrigation and exchange.

But this work of analogy made it possible, moreover, to put forward the notion of identity because similar to the blood from which we have access to our genetic heritage, water by infiltrating the earth and the rock is throat of a DNA called terroir, which it redistributes via irrigation through the plant.  


This method of natural irrigation (land, water and product) led me to question myself about another method of cultivation which stands out from this natural pattern: soilless cultivation.

If by its structure this mode becomes in every point similar to the blood circuit, the fact remains that the notion of terroir and therefore of identity disappears.

So, how to bring an identity to these cultures?

- Blood law as a substitute for soil law -

Based on the development and irrigation of new DNA through the structure, this prospective project thus proposes to turn to new narrative forms and taste concepts by fantasizing new territories, terroirs and therefore new DNA around a city, of a material and many other ...

New York became in the middle of the 19th century, the city of steel architecture allowing the emergence of large structures such as the Brooklyn Bridge or the Chrysler Building skyscraper in Art Deco style.  in the meantime have become the emblems of the city.

The taste DNA of these strawberries becomes subtly metallic between the flavor of Timut pepper combined with that of iron. 



Ancient city of Yemen, Shibam nicknamed the "Manhattan of the desert" has built its cultural identity through its vernacular architecture made of mud bricks, a mixture of straw, clay and rice husks, then baked in the sun.

Strawberries add a flavor of straw and clay combined with the spicy, hot and slightly bitter flavor of saffron. 



A new city that has become the symbol of a reborn France and of the architect Auguste Perret, Le Havre draws its DNA through its reinforced concrete architecture. This material, offering multiple possibilities for plastic expression, is characterized by high porosity. It is therefore not uncommon to see weeds growing through the cracks of a concrete building at the bend of an alley in Le Havre.

The DNA of these strawberries is a subtle blend of the flavors of nettle and dandelion.



The village of Kandovan, nestled in Iran at the foot of the volcano Mount Sahand, extinct for 11,000 years, is part of a so-called troglodyte architecture. The dwellings were formed by the ashes and debris of ancient eruptions.

Strawberries with Kondovan DNA have a smoky earthy aftertaste, thanks to the combination of smoked beetroot and roasted coffee.
