Nicolas Maigret exposes the internal workings of media through an exploration of their dysfunctions, limitations or failure thresholds. He develops sensory and immersive audio visual experiences through these examinations. After completing studies in intermedia art, Maigret joined the LocusSonus lab in Aix, France, where he explored networks as a creative tool. As a curator, he initiated the disnovation.net research project, a critique of the propaganda of world of innovation. He teaches at Parsons Paris and co-founded the Art of Failure collective in 2006.
