Piotr Szyhalski has in the past decade established the Labor Camp, an ongoing art project that includes interactive components (digital and physical), original music, performances,videos, printed ephemera, texts, a blog, and an archive of online resources. Moving between fine arts (painting, photography, drawing, installation), media art, sound, and design, Szyhalski’s multilayered works often explore communication/exchange, extreme historical phenomena and relationships between the individual and society/history/time. His work has been exhibited worldwide at such venues as the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Siggraph;ISEA Paris; the New York Expo Film Festival; the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago; the New School in New York; the Minneapolis Institute of Arts; the San Jose Museum of Art; Experimenta Design, Lisbon. Pieces are in the collections of the Walker Art Center, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and others. Szyhalski is currently a professor of media arts at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design,and the recipient of the 2009–2010 McKnight Artist Fellowship for Visual Artists.
