Tim Knowles

Tim Knowles lives and works in London. His work is exhibited widely both in the UK and internationally, recent shows include; Wanderlust a solo exhibition curated by Paula Orrell at Plymouth Arts Centre [2009] and Unpredictable forms of Sound and Motion Bitforms Gallery, New York [2009].

Knowles has produced a number of public works including Searchlight #1 for the Economist Plaza in 2008 and Windbarbs [2009] for Plymouth Hoe. He has just undertaken a British Council and CO-OS funded visit to Brazil, to work on The Weather Exchange, an International project conceived and curated by Tim Knowles and Brazilian artist Cadu Costa. He is also about to launch a major collaboration with The Royal Mail, presented as an online work, publication and exhibition.

Chance is crucial to Tim Knowles’ work, which is generated by apparatus, mechanisms, systems and processes beyond the artist’s control. Akin to scientific experimentation a situation is engineered in which the outcome is unpredictable, directed by the external forces. These operations or performances seek to reveal the invisible forces in the world around us and reveal the nature of hidden systems.
