Artist and scenographer Nicolas Ticot started his career on the 1990s electro scene. He is artistic director of the XLR Project company, whose work treads the line between disciplines, using technology in a quest for meaning that everyone can understand. A mapping enthusiast, Nicolas Ticot works with images and sound, the body and architecture, in a continuous dialogue with technological innovation. He dreams up new forms of artistic expression and creates colourful digital artworks that tell down-to-earth, human stories. One of these pieces was 99angles, a project that takes a fresh look at abandoned spaces and turns them into the setting for a new urban narrative. This performance has been staged in the former wholesale market in Lyon's Confluence district, and in several other cities.
