Over the past four years within Kevin’s work, one can see transitions in and synthesis of media including painting, video, physical computing, and more recently, 2-dimensional digital prints. Through this synthesis of media, the conceptual investigation of the natural world through charts, diagrams and systems is a constant theme. His early work used solar energy to power a fictional television station, while more recent work uses sensors to create an interactive video installation that questions entropy.

Most recently, he has exhibited his work at Art Lab AKIBA in Tokyo Japan, Stasjon K in Sandnes, Norway ,Ginza Geijutsu Laboratory in Tokyo, Japan and 1708 Gallery in Richmond VA.
