Did it escape your attention that last month was the 70th birthday of the United Nations? Did you miss the opportunity to celebrate by following Elyx on an “exciting 70-day (virtual) trip around the world to shine light on the U.N.’s work”?
What? You’re not familiar with Elyx, the United Nations’ first “digital ambassador”? Allow me to introduce you: Elyx is a stick figure created not by a 5-year-old but by the “renowned French artist YAK.”
You’ve never heard of YAK either? My goodness. Yacine Ait Kaci, according to his publicists, is “currently reinventing digital street art, or misappropriating reality through virtual reality, by means of viral drawing on social networks.” Got that? Me neither.
