Kit Mead’s 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.
