Kit Mead (b. 1987 in Awali, Bahrain) lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland and Christ’s Hospital, England.
His practice articulates the presence of different temporal experiences by exploring the dynamics of uncertainty and transition created in the changing representation of environments and objects along with the collapsing boundaries between the real and the virtual. He produces durational and experiential installations along with digital video-based work that contain compressed information via non-linear narratives, repetitive structures and irrational cuts allowing moments, histories and locations to entangle and intersect in the attempt to create forms of time travel.
Mead graduated from Fine Art, Institute of the Arts Cumbria, Carlisle, Cumbria in 2010.
