In our fast pace world, artist, designer and academic Dr. George Khut is using his practice to help us slow down and focus our attention inwards.

Working across the fields of electronic and participatory art, as well as interaction design and health, George has spent the last 12 years creating intimate, body- focused artworks that reframe our experiences of embodiment, present time, and body-mind interactions. George’s award winning heart rate controlled interactive artwork Distillery: Waveforming is as visually stunning as it is practical, and has inspired the smartphone relaxation app, BrightHearts, proving real life problems can be solved through excellent design.
