CANTON -- The Creative Spirit Community Arts Center will host "Eaux D'Artifice," an exhibition of new media art installations by Steven Mygind Pedersen.

Pedersen has taken regional oddities such as the village of Potsdam’s toilet displays as the starting point and motif for a larger meditation on ideas of place, situation, and individuation.

The opening reception for Eaux D'Artifice is on Jan. 18 from 7 to 9 p.m.; and the exhibition then continues until Feb. 9.

Pedersen is an interdisciplinary artist, whose work weaves together disparate media and working practices, moving between object-orientated production, time-based media, and interactive installation. Pedersen received his BA(Hons) in Fine Art and Contemporary Critical Theory, from Goldsmiths College, London, after which he completed a two-year study period in the School of Media Arts at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen.

Since getting his MFA in Electronic Integrated Arts from NYSCC at Alfred University, Pedersen has continued to exhibit works within the US and abroad.

He is Assistant Professor in Clarkson University’s Digital Arts and Sciences program.
