Information Sheet
(1) About You

Louis Grosperrin
BA Graphic Design Y3, Moving Image



I’m a 21 year old french graphic design student, currently enrolled in the Moving Image
pathway of the Graphic Design course of Central Saint Martins in London.

I have previously lived in Paris and Hong Kong, where I spent the biggest part of my
childhood. My work takes many forms, traditionally more illustration based, but
progressively less flat as I am venturing in the world of animation. I find my inspiration in
tales, legends and science-fiction and enjoy tackling subjects with a touch of irony and

(2) About Your Work


Foley assistant Mika Barroux, and help from Izzy Bizu on soundtrack

No sponsors

This animation is based on the following brief; find a way that would allow someone to
bury themselves once they are gone. I inspired myself from the many examples of Rube
Goldberg machines that have flooded my imagination through cartoons and comics since
my childhood, to create a complex and fully automated contraption that would effectively
allow someone to be taken down in his grave after they pass.

I declined the whole in a sort of cynical parody of Ikea, the aesthetic of the work being
quite close to the style that defines the brand, I decided to decline the image and
philosophy of the multinational company. For me, it symbolises the current trend and taste
of our capitalist society, forever consuming by comfort rather than taste, accumulating
standardised objects with no humanity or sentimental value, hiding behind the clean,
surgical and consumer friendly mask of the brand. We are voraciously hoarding things to
remind ourselves that we are alive in a physical world, accumulating mechanically.
Something for nothing.
