A truly accessible work which encourages public participation and introspection, Cross the Scan/ Abbey Road revolutionises the way the public sees art work and that of digitalisation. For Nuit Blanche, it offers the Parisian public a work on which to walk across, to allow freedom of expression, to encourage openness by sharing and exploring, making those who encounter it both actor, creator and broadcaster.
Cross the Scan is really all about bringing Abbey Road alive to various corners of the globe. In fact, Nuit Blanche is just the first of many stops for this creation. By transferring a famous part of modern culture to a scanner, Les Nivaux enable us to follow in the steps of collective history by reactivating this common DNA that binds us all together.
