A Metabolist Utopia is an audio-visual immersive experience offering a look at the Japanese architectural metabolist movement. This futurist movement, influenced notably by the drawings of Archigram, carries the flexibility and the organic character of the city at its peak.


Architect, digital artist, audio-visual director, Jérémie Bellot is a 30-year-old jack of all trades who devotes himself equally to individual and collective products, as demonstrated by his involvement within the AV Exciters collective. Jérémie Bellot is also a founding member of the steering committee of the AV Lab, the Strasbourg Fab Lab.

Nan[O] is a composer, musician, and plastician. After learning autodidactically, he developed his approach to acousmatic music through his engagement within the ar(t)chitecture 3RS collective. He is pulled to developing and creating sound installations multicast in unusual locations: the cloister of the Trinitaires in Metz, a scaffolding tower for the Ososphère festival, the Aldringen subterranean passage in Luxembourg, and many more...


Elaborated by the French/Japanese duo Nonotak, VERSUS is an immersive AV experience that questions the relationship between 360° image and sound. The viewer finds himself submerged, at the center of an environment that constantly redefines space by breaking distances between projection, audience and screen.This project benefitted from the support of the SAT's artwork creation program.


Nonotak 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 envelope the viewer, capitalizing on Takami Nakamoto's approach of space & sound, and Noemi Schipfer's experience in kinetic visual. The last 2 years they have been commissioned by many countries all over the world and have been invited by institutions and Galleries.
