Kathy Hinde

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 aims to create work that gives rise to a poetic and reflective experience that enriches an appreciation of the everyday, inviting a heightened awareness of the world around us. Kathy frequently works in collaboration with other practitioners and scientists and often actively involves the audience in the process. She has shown work across Europe, Scandinavia, China, Pakistan, USA, Colombia, Brazil and New Zealand. She is an Associate Artist with Art Production House, Cryptic, in Glasgow, Scotland.


The conference

Sound, Light and Water

Kathy will show aspects of her audio visual installation Tipping Point which explores the sonic complexities of combining resonating glass vessels with shifting water levels. 
Tipping Point forms both a sound sculpture and the basis of a live performance. Kathy will also present her project Submerge which investigates a network of streams running through the city of Glasgow. Submerge invites people on walks to trace the streams, record underwater sounds, and perform scientific tests to analyse water samples from different locations. The sounds and data gathered form an interactive installation using light, water and sound. Both projects explore "interference" in different ways. Tipping Point exploits sonic interference, resonance and feedback, whereas Submerge uncovers interferences resulting from urban developments that re-route and interrupt the natural flow of waterways through an environment.
