Kit Webster

Driven by a desire to explore and challenge sensory perceptions, Melbourne-based artist Kit Webster has gained international attention for his cutting-edge audiovisual installations. Ranging from site-specific projections to digital sculptures, his works utilise precision programming and visualisation techniques to create captivating immersive environments. In continually pushing the boundaries of technology and art, Kit is not afraid to present highly experimental concepts designed to expose possibilities for the creation of a new audiovisual aesthetic.

After graduating in 2008 with a Fine Arts degree from RMIT University, Kit developed the synchronised sound and light installations ‘Dataflux’ and ‘Scribbluminous’, which attracted wide Internet exposure. After an internship at a leading European interactive design studio, he returned to develop his synesthetic digital audiovisual sculpture ‘Enigmatica’, leading to invitations to participate in exhibitions and arts festivals in Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Switzerland, Croatia and France. His work has been documented on numerous art sites and in publications including ‘Light Works, Experimental Light Art’ by the Politecnico di Milano.

As well as his installations and digital sculptures, Kit works on commissioned projections, theatre productions and live visual art for music events. He also collaborates with RMIT arts students on their projects and has delivered lectures at RMIT, the University of Technology Sydney, and Massey University, Wellington, New Zealand. Kit’s recent works include ‘Prismatica’, a crystal sculpture illuminated with programmed geometric animations, ‘Supernova’, an installation combining laser, projection and sound, and ‘Equilibrium’, a large-scale digital video sculpture commissioned for the launch of the new RMIT Design Hub.
