During the Venice Biennale 2011, Pia Myrvold staged Flow as a parallel to the Biennale on the Zattere in Venice. Caroline Langill, Associate Dean of OCAD University, Toronto, said the following of the exhibit:

(…) this body of work was a rare new media offering in what one expects to be a festival that highlights art at the vanguard of contemporary practice. At a time when institutions are grappling with the almost weekly emergence of new digital platforms, MYrvoLD points to the necessity of bridging the analogue/digital divide by producing highly technical work that is both rearward and forward looking. The potentially immersive installation evidences the breadth of her practice as well as her situatedness within contemporary art. Not a technologist, MYrvoLD adopts the digital in order to dispel preconceptions about what art is and can be.

Clearly, she is a pioneer and will continue to shape the future of art.
