Bob Bicknell Knight
Bob Bicknell-Knight (b. Suffolk, UK) is a multidisciplinary artist, curator and writer, working primarily in painting, sculpture, video, installation and digital media. His work is influenced by surveillance capitalism and responds to the hyper consumerism of the internet, exploring ideas surrounding the automation of work, global power structures and technocratic authoritarianism, as well as critically examining contemporary technologies.
Within his practice he harnesses different processes and materials to create both physical and digital artworks, including fabric printing, painting, ceramics, readymade objects, bookmaking, 3D printing technologies and tools made readily available by the internet, including game development software.
