A measure of time

The compás is a metronome that defines the rhythmic flow of flamenco. Compáz seeks to transpose this principle of mathematical rhythmic variations in order to entice a vivid emotional response through the presentations of its projects.

Mathematical Esthetics

The compas is an instrument that is used to measure, compare, delineate distances. It also is a tool that points to magnetic north thus providing a sense of direction, aiding in navigation and allowing for exploration. Indeed, Compáz defines itself at the synergy of mathematics, science and technology with its emotional applications invoked through the creation of Art.

Pacifist action

The word Compáz is a homophone of the spanish words “con paz” which translates to being “with peace”. It embodies the spirit of the organization that questions the ever increasing role of technology in our daily lives and seeks to contribute to the peaceful evolution of society. Thus, the goal of the Compáz projects is to create thought provoking questions by stimulating our emotions.

We are
Compáz

Founders

Behind Compáz is a passionate, fascinating female scientist: Laure-Emmanuelle Perret-Aebi, manager at the photovoltaic division. A visionary intrigued by the increasing impact of technology on our society, she wants to break down laboratory walls so as to bring research to life through art and bring its applications within reach of society as a whole. Convinced that the combination of these two universes has the ability to change history, Laure-Emmanuelle approached Lats Kladny and Raphaël Pizzera, founders of Inox Communication. Together, they created the Compáz association, dedicated to promoting artistic works and projects rooted in innovation.
