Kin is a Glasgow-based artist combining sound, moving image and physical structures to create multi-sensory installations incorporating motion sensors, digital software, tracking devices and drones to examine understandings of nature, agency, and how environments mediate relationships between people.
Current areas of interest include using imagery and metaphor from the natural environment to explore power within the digital landscape, the relationship between communication and surveillance technologies, our participation in online networks and cultures of predictability.
Kin has produced works for DNweekeND (Doncaster), Chorlton Arts Festival (Greater Manchester), Sound UK (rural touring in Wiltshire, Devon and Cornwall), Reuse Aloud (New Bridge Project, Newcastle), InTransit festival (Kensington and Chelsea, London), the Poor Door at A-Side B-Side Gallery (London) and Coastival (Scarborough).
In 2016, her cardboard and electronic work Dead Pigeons and Chandeliers featured in a New York gallery exhibit on Politics and Power, and in May 2017, she received the first international showcase of her audio-visual installation Watchtower at Friday Island in Luxembourg, initially developed whilst Artist-in-Residence at The Auxiliary, Stockton. Watchtower was further developed at Cove Park during the Cryptic Winter Residency 2018. Kin is part of Cultura-Plasmic Inc.
