Kit Young, Allen Moore
Kit Young has been working at the forefront of expanded cinema and experimental video for many years. He builds video systems that can be played in an improvisational way. He performs collaboratively with other sound and visual artists at venues that host expanded cinema and performative media events. Kit has written and directed immersive works that place dancers in interactive environments. Experimental sessions conducted in his studio become video essays and shorts. Though his work utilizes new media technique, his practice is grounded in the experimental cinema thematic traditions of perception, awareness, social justice, and humor. He has been an artist in residence at the Squeaky Wheel Media Center, (Buffalo, N.Y.), and at Signal Culture, (Owego, N.Y.). He has guest lectured at San Francisco State University, and at the Academy of Art, Wroclaw, Poland. He is a Berkeley Civic Arts Grant recipient. He has screened and performed throughout the US and internationally, most recently at Crossroads Film Festival, (SF); Elastic Arts, (Chicago); the Ann Arbor Film Festival 60; and the Intermediale Festival, (Poland).
