Kim V. Goldsmith's digital media practice explores the wide-ranging territories of rural and regional landscapes, using storytelling, sound and moving images to explore alternative perspectives on and narratives around regional ecologies. Kim has long believed rural and regional locations are a rich environment in which to create engaging and universal art, informed by the histories, landscapes, and communities in which they’re developed.
As well as producing works for festivals and international collaborations through the UK-based Arts Territory Exchange, over two years from 2017, Kim worked across inland NSW and remote Iceland, exploring and documenting the landscape from the perspective of corvids (ravens). Including VR, 360 sound, room-sized projections and constructed soundscapes, the resulting works were exhibited at the Western Plains Cultural Centre in Dubbo over the summer of 2019/20. Kim's latest work in development is documenting the post-drought recovery of the internationally-signficant Macquarie Marshes wetlands of NSW, throughout 2020, for a new series of AV works for exhibition in Australia and overseas in 2021. Process is as much a part of her practice as the finished works.
Alongside her art practice, Kim has spent the past 24 years working as a media and marketing communications consultant, and content producer, including time on projects and professional development delivery within the NSW regional arts sector.
