Dr George Poonkhin Khut is an artist and interaction-designer working across the fields of electronic art, design and health. In 2012, he received the National New Media Art Award for his heart rate controlled artwork Distillery: Waveforming - a prototype iPad app developed during a residency at the Children's Hospital at Westmead, supported by the Australian Network for Art and Technology.
George's body-focussed interactive and participatory artworks use biofeedback technologies to re-frame experiences of embodiment, health and subjectivity. He has participated in group exhibitions such as CUSP: Design into the Next Decade at Australian Design Centre; Sensory Overload at McClelland Sculpture Park and Gallery; Synapse: A Selection at the Powerhouse Museum; and Wonderland: Contemporary Art from Australia at the Museum of Contemporary Art Taipei.
His research interests include tangible and embodied interaction, participatory art, and experimental art & interaction design in health and medicine.
