NONOTAK studio is the collaboration between the illustrator Noemi Schipfer and the architect musician Takami Nakamoto. Commissioned by the Architect Bigoni-Mortemard to create a mural in the lobby of a public housing building in Paris, NONOTAK was created in late 2011.
In early 2013, they start to work on light and sound installations, creating an ethereal, immersive and dreamlike environment meant to envelop the viewer, capitalizing on Takami Nakamoto’s approach of space & sound, and Noemi Schipfer’s experience in kinetic visual.
They presented their first audiovisual installation at the Mapping Festival in May 2013. In summer 2013, NONOTAK comes up with a performance, LATE SPECULATION, where they are the creators and contents of the project.
Nick Verstand (1984) is a contemporary artist exploring human behavior and perception through spatial audiovisual compositions. His autonomous installations and live performances investigate the materialization of internal emotional experiences and are created through collaborative design processes aimed at breaking down social boundaries.
The resulting intuitive experiences, co-creations of artist and audience, generate a hypnotizing environment for the subconscious mind.
Nick has exhibited and performed at Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Dutch Design Week, Art Central Hong Kong, SXSW and collaborated with artists such as Fatima Yamaha, Joep Beving and Suzanne Ciani. Dezeen selected his project AURA as one of the top 10 art installations of 2017, alongside Olafur Eliasson, Ai Weiwei, and Anish Kapoor.
