An exhibition of interactive and participatory artworks by pioneering new media artist George Khut, exploring the connections between thinking, feeling and being. Presented as the inaugural exhibition at the DADAA Fremantle Gallery, these immersive electronic artworks will explore the creative and transformative potential of contemplative practices.

George Khut is an artist and interaction-designer working across the fields of electronic art, interaction design and arts-in-health. He lectures in art and interaction design at UNSW Art & Design (University of New South Wales, Faculty of Art & Design) in Sydney, Australia.

Khut's body-focussed interactive and participatory artworks use bio-sensing technologies to re-frame experiences of embodiment, health and subjectivity.
