About Pia MYrvoLD

MYrvoLD use projectors, over the counter electronics, electronic household gadgets and waste materials to create site specific installations, together with signature cut outs and 3D printed acrylics.
The object of her work is the travel of light using mirrors and perforations, shadows and video projections creating a spatial work that projects on surfaces around. Sometimes with interactive elements, the work is a study of beauty created with chromatic light variations,
as a new kind of projector.
The #LightHackSculptures series was started in Miami in 201 6, and has since been set up in various galleries and museums, including Gallery Lelia Mordoch, Miami, Lelia Mordoch Galerie, Paris, Pixel Blanc, Paris, Marbella Designfair and currently in the Nordic Museum in Seattle, in the group show Nordic Exposure. Being site specific in nature, these installations are an ongoing, evolving series.

About Piksel

Piksel is a network of artists and an annual event for electronic art and technological freedom. Part workshop, part festival, it is organised in Bergen, Norway, and involves participants from more than a dozen countries exchanging ideas, coding, presenting art and software projects, doing workshops, performances and discussions on the aesthetics and politics of free technologies.

Piksel is focusing on the Free/Libre and Open Source movement as a strategy for regaining artistic control of the technology, but also a means to bring attention to the close connections between art, politics, technology and economy.

Piksel Studio 207 is Piksel’s new project in Bergen. A space for experimental media to expose innovative methods for expanding artistic opportunities and new creative tools based on free technologies. Piksel Studio 207 is established in a 130 m2 room where we create an annual program for artists, children and young people, cultural institutions and the general public.
