Rob Kennedy  makes videos, sounds and objects. This work tends to focus on the unreliability of language and the difficulties of succinct communication, shifting between sculpture, audio, text and video, to make an art that is more concerned with the manipulation of material, language and time rather than acting as a framing device through which to view the world. The role of collaboration with artists and non-artists is a mainstay in all this work, led by the desire to give up certain creative controls in order to provoke doubt and thought, his manipulation of materials encourages the dissonance of everyday experience to foster empowering, uncertain and open encounters with the artwork.
