Myriel Milicevic is an artist and interaction designer. With her Neighbourhood Satellites she explores the hidden connections between people and their natural, social, and technical environments. These connections and systems are often turned into practical-utopian models and stories: how can energy leaks in the city become power sources? How can we guide butterflies to new meadows in the Rocky Mountains? How would plants grow if they were cultivated in political systems? What can we learn from people in the hills of Thailand for our urban lives? These explorations are mostly of a participatory nature, emerging from collaborations with other practitioners in the context of workshops, classrooms, exhibitions, residencies and fieldwork. Myriel received her MA from the Interaction Design Institute Ivrea, Italy and her diploma in Graphic Design from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam. Further, she studied at the Conceptual and Information Arts department of San Francisco State University.
