Kylie Boon

From an art and design background, Kylie works in the medium of film.  Research work specifically focuses on philosophical investigations into a variety of film and TV series.  Examining a range of narratives and characters to animate philosophical discussions.

Kylie is currently working on a written piece that attempts to glimpse beyond the surface façade of the characters portrayed in ShowTime’s Penny Dreadful, with particular attention to gender socialisation.

Recent work also includes an investigation into NBC’s Awake, and the implicit philosophical notions found in its narrative. Applying the works of Kierkegaard, Wittgenstein, and Sartre as a means of comparing a theological existential reading of the narrative with an atheist reading. 

Practical work includes experimental video sculpture, corporate videos and stop motion animation.
