Imogen Knight

My practice has transitioned from painting, to digitally-scanned painting, to stop-frame animation, to AI animation, and is currently defined by audiovisual coded installations. Choices surrounding the mediums of my work have been prompted by the bewildering effects of a global pandemic, which secluded us to our screens and forced us to find comfort in the artificial. I have felt compelled to respond to subsequent debates surrounding fluctuating social conventions, codes and cues, thus producing pieces which force the viewer to become a performer.

How familiar are we with technology? How familiar are we with others? How familiar are we with ourselves?
