Kin designs artworks often combining repurposed and recycled materials and structures found within the environment with contemporary technology (i.e. motion sensors, digital software, tracking devices, drones). Over the past few years, she has created site-specific pieces for DNweekeND (Doncaster), Chorlton Arts Festival (Greater Manchester), Sound UK (rural touring in Wiltshire, Devon and Cornwall), Reuse Aloud (New Bridge Project, Newcastle), Sand, Sea, Sculpture (Essex), Wandsworth Arts Festival (London), InTransit festival (Kensington and Chelsea, London), Hackney WickED (London), the Poor Door at A-Side B-Side Gallery (London) and Coastival (Scarborough). Her installations are often designed for unusual, non-traditional art spaces, including disused shop units, playgrounds, green spaces, piers, beaches, and derelict buildings. Last year, her cardboard and electronic work Dead Pigeons and Chandeliers featured in a New York gallery exhibit on Politics and Power, and in May 2017, she received the international premiere of her audio-visual installation Watchtower at the European Convention Centre in Luxembourg.
