Zany or fantasy-ridden hyperactives, the Faltazi tandem from Nantes are atypical and plan on remaining so. On one hand Victor Massip, designer- mechanic trained in urbanism. On the other Laurent Lebot, graphic designer usually to be found in the science-fiction section of book stores, where he feeds on the works of Bill Sienkiewicz. Together they produce fest-noz posters, helmets for cyclists, aircraft cockpits and imaginary objects that, ideally, will be fleshed out when 3-D printers have been perfected. Monitors of techniques and sniffer-outers of evolutions, the Faltazians are imaginative inventors who re-transcribe into reality concepts that blend aesthetics, usage, technology... In phase with the identity of their clients, they like to take time to think and do research, no doubt in reaction to all-out productivism (see their pamphlet www.monsieurfaltazi.com which illustrates this ethical combat). If the ideal of Victor Massip is to pursue the adventure launched with his companion while attempting to educate consumers to become citizens, Laurent Lebot imagines himself as a laboratory designer, working on unheard of experiments such as ‘object embryos’ or ‘seed scissors’...
