Miyoko’s interest in art video started in 1998 as she was studying Art History at a University in Paris.
Among others Bill Viola particularly caught her attention for his video environments which envelop the visitor in an image and sound world both poetic and dense.
Determined to create her own video art works, she was taught and trained in 2001 to the cinema making techniques, majoring in editing for 3 years at Institut International de l’Image et du Son (International Institute of Image and Sound), located in Paris region, from which she obtained her Master of Fine Arts specialized in editing and special effects degree.
Since then, she has worked as a director or editor on short movies, documentaries, corporate films, commercials, and TV programs in France. She has taught editing techniques at the international renown animation movie, photography and film making school Les Gobelins.
In parallel, she has directed videos for contemporary art exhibits (Paris, Bruxelles, Dubaï) and responds to diverse video scenography orders for thematic events such as those of the
Reflex gallery on tattoo or crowd phenomenon. Other example is the exhibit Vidéo’Appart which consisted in video installations at private places of individuals or in hotels along with a great number of artists.
Miyoko developed a unique approach which combines both technical ability with a concrete understanding of story construction so as to give an original artistic vision.

Collaboration Interests & Artist Statement
Art for me is an attempt to connect with others. I want to express how I think and feel as a way to find others who feel some connection with me on that level. And I want to hear what others have to say to me about themselves in return.
I am looking forward to more.
