Enlightener and plastic artist, Nicolas Villenave works on the boarder of plastic arts and live performing art. Graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts et Techniques du Théâtre in 1997, he had quickly a lighting-designer.
He has dedicated himself to the creation since 2005. The mix between explorations on light sources, material, kinetic energy and processing technics gives him the opportunity to have very personal creations.
Former editions of the Fête des Lumières:
2013 : « This is not a light bulb #2 » - Lyon 3
« The song of the filament » - Lyon 3
The visitor is wrapped in a « sensitive cocoon » which brings light bulbs into life. Glowing with a soft light, some of them sing, others can be watched as they are born or when they cry. Taking interactivity to a new level, spectators are equipped with a monitoring system and can influence and guide events.
