Nathanaëlle Picot was born into a world of images. Introduced to the cinema at an early age by her father who repaired reels for Gaumont, it was only natural that she should choose to study video design.
Three years ago, she founded the experimental laboratory Pixel n’Pepper with technical director, Gaël Picquet. Their unbridled creativity is embodied in the amazing displays they present all over the world, including in Dubai where they projected the Cartier Panther onto the Burj Khalifa in 2016. In the same year, audiences at the Festival of Lights were mesmerised by their whirling Showmen's Dream (Songe Forain).
Imagine the Place des Terreaux turned into a huge open-air cinema, with the façades of the Hôtel de Ville and Art Museum as screens, celebrating the magic of cinema in the heart of the very city where it was invented! From the first silent movies to the world of westerns, science-fiction and musicals, this fast-moving show features cult scene after cult scene. Seven-year old Enoha and her mischievous, bumbling cat sneak into the film to guide us, with a certain naïveté and curiosity, through this irreverent excursion into the history of cinema. Pixel n'Pepper sweeps us up into a highly original adventure featuring stunning visual effects that is full of enthusiasm, mischief and generosity.
"Enoha fait son cinéma" accompanies the "Lumière! Le cinéma inventé" exhibition at the Confluences Museum from 13.06.17 to 25.02.18.
With "Un songe forain," plunge freely into the ancient yet contemporary world of carnivals. The Ferris wheel pays a first tribute to this dizzying world as images spin and follow one another: a merry-go-round, cotton candy, a knife thrower, a strongman...
At roller-coaster speed, you are transported from the sky to the center of the Earth. The colorful evocation of this festive world will stir childhood memories that are still alive inside you.
