James Beckett is a visual artist and a musician who works with installations that include a variety of mediums, ranging from embroidery to performance. Music represents an extension for his visual practice, encouraging a conceptual understanding of sound. He is in interested in researching minor histories, especially focusing on the European period of industrial development from the physical and biological standpoints. Here, Beckett uses a museological display to represent the processes of evolution of historical events, which are narrated from a more peripheral point of view. His work appeared in The Kitchen group exhibition Between Thought and Sound in 2007. For more information, please visit http://www.jamesbeckett.tk/.
