Kathy Hinde, Artist, UK

Kathy Hinde’s work grows from a partnership between nature and technology expressed through audio-visual installations and performances that combine sound, sculpture, image and light. Drawing on inspiration from behaviours and phenomena found in the natural world, she creates work that is generative; that evolves; that can be different each time it is experienced.

Kathy frequently works in collaboration with other practitioners and scientists and often actively involves the audience in the creative process. She has created light and sound installations in public spaces, including urban streets, woodlands and forests.

She has shown work extensively across Europe, China, Pakistan, USA, Canada, Colombia, Mexico, Brazil and New Zealand. She became a Cryptic associate in 2015. Kathy received an Honorary Mention at Prix Ars Electronica 2015, was runner up for the PIARS Sonic Arts Award in 2014 and longlisted for the Aesthetica Art Prize in 2014 and 2018. In 2017, Kathy received an ORAM award for innovations in sound and music, and a British Composer Award in Sonic Art. Kathy is a 2018 selected artist for European SHAPE Platform for innovative music and audiovisual art.
