artist in studio


Kyle Sattler is a New Zealand born multimedia artist, musician, and producer and was educated at the Quay School of the Arts in Whanganui, New Zealand (BFA 1999) and Wintec in Hamilton New Zealand (MA distinction 2018).

His works look at the influence rhythm and flow on human experience, reflecting upon the ‘real present’ within the intuitive nature of the sphere of our effective action. Sattler’s recent installation artworks have focused primarily on sound and video using any number of semi-autonomous systems working incommensurably to mimic the aleatoric nature of our privileged human instants.

BFA. Quay School for the Arts. Whanganui. 1999.
