Born from a scientific background, Yann Nguema finally turned to the world of artistic creation. As a musician, he founded the group EZ3kiel in 1992 for which he developed the entirety of a rich visual production that has become a reference and a trademark. He focuses his work mainly on performing arts with a constant emphasis on an image-music association. Very quickly he integrated computer technology into his creative process by developing his own software and adding a completely interactive dimension to his productions. As a designer of exhibitions, installations and scenography, he has designed numerous projects combining technology, research and poetry. Yann is currently an ambassador artist for the Lyon Festival of Lights.＜Yann Nguema / Official WebSite＞
