Travel is an integral part of Kit Wise's life and work. Born in Portsmouth, UK, Wise studied at the Royal College of Art in London before receiving a post-graduate scholarship to the British School in Rome.
Recent work has focused on the experiences of the rapid-transit traveler and how international urban environments can feel both familiar and strange. Currently, Wise uses the notion of the artist as 'sojourner' to assess the increasingly fluid or plastic experience of geographical and cultural space. His practice ranges across digital photography, sculpture, animation and drawing.
In 2006 Wise will occupy the Australia Council Tokyo Studio. His work was recently included in Group Material at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery and in Bodybag at the Academy of the Arts at Inveresk. He currently resides in Melbourne and lectures in the Faculty of Art & Design at Monash University.
