about us

STRUCTURALS is a Studio of New Media Artists based in Switzerland. Always experimenting, mixing real time & procedural visuals, video and graphic design, we create visual & immersives experiences that modify the perception of space.

In 2018, we founded the association FOLNUI and started working on scenography, lights installations & live visuals. Basically, it gave us the opportunity to learn everything from scratch and work on a lot of different roles. It allowed us to experiment a lot of techniques and softwares.

Today, we create most of our content through TouchDesigner & MadMapper, giving us a full control of the visuals in realtime and a lot of possible interactions in complexe installations and concerts. When we work in a new environnement, we like to think of the details of the place, the specificity of the architecture or the nature that surround the installation. We then try to use some of those specificities to transform spaces and create new experiences for the visitors.

About our studies, we trained as Interactive Media Designer in Geneva; and then separately graduated in Visual Communication and illustration at ESBDI and in Graphic Design at ECAL. We also have the formation that allows us to work with lasers in Switzerland. Since 2023, we work at 100% in freelance for this studio, Structurals.

THE PROCESS

At the heart of our creative process is a custom environment we've developed in TouchDesigner. This unique tool enables us to control the visuals we create with precision, with audio and live MIDI signals. This software continually evolves and adapts to the unique demands of each project, ensuring that our work remains tailored to the specific context.

In addition to TouchDesigner, we harness the power of 3D softwares such as Blender and Unreal Engine. These tools serve as our canvas for constructing and previewing our installations. This multi-faceted approach allows us to envision and refine our creations in a virtual space before bringing them to life in the physical world.

We meticulously program our visuals in a procedural way, to be adaptable and responsive to the nuances of different architectural and scenographic contexts. This versatility ensures that our projections seamlessly integrate with and enhance the environments they inhabit, forging a direct and harmonious connection between the art and its surroundings.
