Artist Statement:
Artist Bio:
Pia MYrvoLD is a Paris based artist and futurist specialized in interactive art interfaces that involve the public on a deeper level in the thinking and creative process. Through technology and multi media from 3D animation, painting, video, fashion and design, MYrvoLD builds new relationship between the art, the dissemination of ideas and the public. Her art exhibitions and installations spearhead new roles for the
future of the museum and an intrinsic role for art in building future societies.
Through her 3D worlds and VR installations, MYrvoLD shows us that art and language are virtual concepts rooted in historic procreation, cultural structure and fluid identities. The fractal instinct to build presents itself in this epoch of technologies and global connectedness with new media through perception, imagination, and participation with individual and collective creativity.
The installation ART AVATAR, Centre Pompidou, in November 2014 suggested a fractal bridge from the past to the future, with a virtual reality space mirroring with exact detail real space in real time, allowing the public to make their personal animated sculpture visible in the virtual space. By tracking devices, infrared motion sensors, the public’s role changes from spectator to co-creator without compromising the artistic content in the exhibition.
Her 2015 project, WANDS- first generation smart sculptures and the ongoing Syn-Energy sculpture project aims to integrate the process of artistic production with industry, urban culture planning, energy harvesting and to be an inspirational model for government and urban developers.
