Since 1999, the artist focuses on videoart, animation and digital imagery. 2000-2004, the artist has realised media art projects on public screens as a member of the artists group [ Strictly Public ], www.strictlypublic.org. Videos and animations by Myriam Thyes are shown worldwide in festivals. Her themes deal with symbols, myths and visual signs from architecture, politics, films, or religions. Her works are explorations of their meanings, a questioning, reassessments, “destabilisations” and creations of new associations. In order to undermine entrenched representations, Thyes works directly with them, to develop them further and juxtapose them against new representations.
