GEORGE KHUT + Thinking Through the Body
George Khut (Doctorate of Creative Arts, UWS) is an artist whose works combine interactive art, audience participation and story-sharing. He has been a guest lecturer and tutor at the School of Design, DAB, UTS, with Associate Professor Albertus Bongers. Recent exhibitions include ‘Enfoldings & Discolsures’ at UTS Gallery, 2008 and ‘The Heart Library Project’ at St. Vincent’s Public Hospital, Darlinghurst 2009. http://georgekhut.com/
Thinking Through The Body is a research ensemble led by George Khut and Lizzie Muller, with Jonathan Duckworth, Somaya Langley, Lian Loke, Garth Paine, Maggie Slattery and Catherine Truman. Paying attention to the experience of the body is the central activity of this project – weaving together approaches from interactive art and Feldenkrais somatic-bodywork. The ensemble create situations that invite participation, reframing our experience of ourselves and our relationship to the world around us – through use of various body-sensing technologies, image, sound and spoken word.
George will talk about his recent exhibition at St. Vincent’s Public Hospital, his work with bio-sensing and biofeedback, and some of the approaches to interactive art he has been developing as part of the Thinking Through The Body research group.
Come and see the interactive exhibition at Dablab UTS which ends this Friday the 26th! http://www.dab.uts.edu.au/dablab

We invite people to bring along projects they are working on or any other cool things to show in a free-for-all at the end of the night. This is a great time to talk to people about things that are coming up, events and what not. Bring in something you have found, something you have broken and show us what you’ve got!
