"Kit Webster has been gaining wide recognition for his enigmatic audiovisual installations. Ranging from site-specific projections to digital sculptures, his works utilise precision programming and visualisation techniques to create captivating immersive environments that challenge sensory perceptions. In continually pushing the boundaries of technology and art, Kit is unafraid to present highly experimental concepts designed to expose the potential for the creation of a new audiovisual aesthetic."
Kit has just returned from the big apple where he created a video sculpture for New York Fashion Week. Previous works by Kit have also been displayed in Melbourne, France, Switzerland, Brazil, Croatia, New Zealand and Sydney.
Kit will be holding an informal Q & A where he will be deconstructing his work, discussing his experience working with clients and festivals and his efforts to bridge the great divide between art and income.
Tim will be sharing with us his amazing new invention. The 'Stereoscopic Internal Projection Apparatus'.
A custom high-diopter contact lense placed onto the eye so as to be able to focus as close to the eyelids as possible. Twin utlra high contrast 15 lumen laser pico projectors are lensed to the size of a postage stamp and positioned over each eyelid. he resulting projection is such that the eye can pan and tilt behind the lid to view more of the projection.
"I love working with new and old media to create compelling, new experiences. More often than not to satiate my own curiosity. While studying at the art university in Linz, Austria I worked on numerous projects from exaggerated, obtuse consequences for the public viewing art in a gallery context, to naked on-body projection of a first person shooter while wearing a brain-computer interface in a two player ultra violent gaming environment. Oh media art... "
