Kate Genevieve

Kate Genevieve is an artist and director of media art group CHROMA. CHROMA explore the flexible relationship between real and imagined worlds through trans-media events and immersive installation. Their site-specific projects range from light performances in Oxford’s Town Hall to largescale projections on Heritage castles and pop-up performances at London’s Science Museum. Their work has been shown nationally and internationally, including Brighton Dome, Brighton Fringe 2013, Embassy Court, Brighton Digital Festival and ISEA 2014. Recently, Kate worked on residencies at Blast Theory (UK), SCANZ 2013 (New Zealand) and co-curated the live art event Transmute (Phoenix Gallery, 2014). Kate is working on a practice-based PHD at the University of Sussex, researching virtual reality, empathy and the environment. This work builds on a yearlong residency at the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science, funded by Arts Council England and PAL labs. By integrating diverse perspectives on embodied perception from dance to cognitive neuroscience, Kate’s multi-sensory art practice uses performance and immersive installation to engage people to explore how sensory perception influences how we experience the self, the body and the world around us. Kate lectures on Creative Media at the Universities of Brighton and Sussex and leads workshops on sense-responsive technology.
