'WANDS' by PIA MYrvoLD (NO)
‘Wands’ is a series of five smart sculptures accompanied by multiple projections of the video STRIPEFIELDS which encompasses pulsating, vertical stripes of colour. Each WAND is made of a large number of custom-made parts in a diverse mix of textures and materials, enabling each sculpture to maintain a unique mode of expression and responses to the interactions of visitors. Sensors monitor proximity, the density of surrounding mass and touch. When visitors encounter the WANDS they can affect these distinct and mysterious objects through movement and touch – coordinating between man and machine.
Artist PIA MYrvoLD is based in Paris and perhaps best known for her multiscreen, interactive new media installations, extending the visual language she first developed in her painting, drawing, textiles and sculpture.
Wands were exhibited at ANX Atelier Nord gallery in Oslo, Norway from 20.11.15 – 13.12.15. The exhibition is supported by Arts Council Norway and by supporters on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter.
