The ELYX story

once upon a time...

ELYX is an extraordinary artistic challenge!

Can a fictional character have an impact on our real lives?

In 2011, Yacine Aït Kaci created ELYX, which has gradually come to life. ELYX will first become a celebrity on social networks, then in 2015, he will be appointed the first and only Digital Ambassador of the United Nations.

Also in 2015, ELYX will embody the release of the Agenda 2030 and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Yacine Aït Kaci will be the guest artist at COP21 - ELYX is then at the negotiating table of the Paris Agreements.

The artistic project has become unquestionably political.

ELYX has entered its second decade and continues its road to autonomy. Having left its traditional notebook behind, it is now evolving in the metavers - these interconnected worlds between augmented, virtual and real life realities.

Where will ELYX be in a few years?
ELYX will surely be driven by an autonomous intelligence and pursue its commitments in a changing world.

ELYX is the simplicity of the line, which meets the complexity of the world to reveal its poetry and beauty.

Museum

ELYX MUSEUM

ELYX celebrated its 10th anniversary during the lockdown. ELYX redoubled its ingenuity to celebrate this anniversary by developing the first art space on Spatial.io.

The ELYX MUSEUM was inaugurated by the UN on 21 April 2021, the International Day of Creativity and Innovation.

Come and (re)discover the incredible history of ELYX!

THE MISSION

"A good sketch is better than a long speech."

Napoleon Bonaparte.

When the strategist places the sketch at the heart of his political plan, he illustrates the paradox of a weapon that is as powerful as it seems harmless. With its joyful and universal language, ELYX decomplexes issues and decomplexes everyone.

ELYX is our companion on the journey to 2030.  Hr opens the discussion in classrooms, meetings and committees, parliaments and ministries, in the street and at home!

The ELYX Foundation under the aegis of the Bullukian Foundation, joins all the actors committed to the success of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

These 17 objectives call for an ecological and solidarity-based, economic, social, technological and cultural transition by 2030. We are collectively in a race against time to meet the challenges facing our civilisations.

The Foundation's three programs in Education (1OTOGO), Politics (Advocacy) and the Arts are opportunities to join forces with us.

 

Sustainable development is not fast enough to keep up with history. ELYX the Company has made the choice of Regeneration!

Including the SDGs in the performance indicators, creating stakeholder engagement with embodied communication, creating the mascot of this commitment that will be deployed through the products, the office or the metavers... are all challenges that we take up with you.

Together, let's regenerate our world so we can make our best stories come true.

Yacine and Adeline

Yacine AIT KACI is a French artist and pioneer of interactive media and digital arts. After having been a director and artistic director for the Louvre, Yves Saint Laurent and Arte, he created the Electronic Shadow collective in 2000. He thus opened the way to the hybridisation of the real and the virtual. In 2003, the collective registered a patent for projection mapping, received several awards (Prix Ars Electronica, Japan Media Art Festival, Laval Virtual....) and held a series of exhibitions and shows. 

In 2011, with the advent of social networks, Yacine creates ELYX and immerses it in a low-tech augmented reality, digital street art is born! What's next? ELYX becomes the first and only Digital Ambassador of the United Nations and Yacine is the guest artist of the COP21. Yacine has thus created a universal character, a link between us all!
