About me

Nicolas MICHEL (also known as Milkorva) is a French visual artist based in Paris. Holding a master's degree in Contemporary Art from Sorbonne (Paris), he has specialized in creating generative and immersive installations for several years. Influenced by the work of Philippe Parreno, whom he assisted for six years, his artistic approach primarily focuses on the potential of new technologies as a medium of creation, exploring their capacity to free art from its fixed and time-bound nature.


His installations have recently been exhibited at the Boston Museum of Sciences, Intervals Festival in Nizhny Nov. , Sonar in Istanbul, and Light Night in Leeds. In collaboration with his long-time friend Valentin Fayaud, he has also produced audiovisual performances (A/V) presented across Europe at events dedicated to digital art such as the Patchlab Festival in Krakow, Nuits Sonores in Lyon, Fotonica in Rome, and the Planétarium at the Cité des Sciences in Paris.


Constantly exploring the connection between the abstract and the figurative and always in search of computerized synesthesia, the artist redefines the role of technology at the core of the production process. The computer dialogue becomes a creative generator that transcends the initial concept. Milkorva's work is not confined by time or exhibition space. Its continuous evolution offers the viewer the opportunity to engage in a distinctive, personal, and renewable experience.
