Mickey van Olst is a Dutch artist based in Berlin operating with a variety of media often involving experimentation through technology. His work is driven by a somewhat naive curiosity for electronics, programming and design paired with the need for communication through unlikely and unwieldy formats.

By placing a strong focus on conceptual thinking forged with a dynamic understanding of design and hands-on technical knowledge, Mickey works on interactive art installations, prototyping and computer generated visuals.
