I aim to create work that inspires through experience

I work in many mediums because I believe if a project requires to be presented in a certain way, you don't want your own knowledge to restrict that.
Right now I want to use technology to bring simple but deeply emotionally effective experiences to everyone, where ever or whoever they are.
When people hear 'technology' or 'interactive art' they think of something that works in an advanced, cutting edge way that's never been seen before, like a magic trick. This can leave the participant momentarily amazed but ultimatley underwhelmed. It's accessible, entertaining but short-lived.
So what I feel is that the focus on technology should be reigned in and then look at an idea or goal as audience oriented, not technically, and use whatever materials or techniques neccessary to make it successful, old or new.
In conclusion it's only the experience that matters.
My current work (art and things I have to do to make a living!) is at http:www.chriskilmartin.co.uk

New Project

Image of the project I am currently researching and coordinating. The techniques are finalised but the most important part, the placement, is still to be decided, any advice is welcome.

  • Ussain Bolt Experience -

    Picture of something I am trying to co-ordinate. Using simple projection techniques I would like to bring the experience of racing the fastest man in the world to locations that where the experience would bring inspiration.
    No one knows more about a culture, situation or need of a community than the people within it so the research of this is highly important but any advice on this would be welcome.

New Project2

Again another large project requiring huge amounts of coordination and research. The aim is to bring the aftermath of a refugee camp and place it exactly piece by piece in the turbine hall of the Tate modern. Inn it's simplest form this is an accessible project using object memory and the context it is presented in to communicate situations that can't be described through the medium they are usually presented in. It will also ask questions of the modern environment that surrounds it.
