[ IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Son Kit looks directly at the camera with a neutral expression while seated in front of a solid, light grey background. They are a non-binary East Asian person wearing a silver septum piercing and thick, black winged eyeliner. Their eyebrows rest closely beneath a straight line of bangs. The rest of their black hair is cropped short at the sides. They are wearing a black, long sleeved sweater over a black button-up shirt with the collar peeking out from the top. ︎︎ heart symbol ]

Son Kit (sometimes Kit Son Lee) is a designer/developer/artist working across new media, sculpture, graphic systems, and language (natural and programming). Their practice troubles dichotomies such as natural/unnatural, familiar/alien, author/reader, and architect/user with allegories derived from their multivalently non-binary positionality.

Kit was the inaugural Designer-in-Residence at Morcos Key and is a co-founder of Codify Art, a producorial collective dedicated to creating, showcasing, and supporting work by artists of color, particularly women, queer, and trans artists of color. They have exhibited work at SOHO20 (Brooklyn), The Naughton Gallery (Belfast), New Museum Youth Summit (NYC), and Franklin Street Works (Stamford), and have curated exhibitions at The Public Theater, bitforms gallery, and Spring/Break Art Show, among other venues. Lecture and workshop credits include Whitney Museum, Brooklyn Museum, PRINTED MATTER LA Art Book Fair, Yale University, the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), and the School of Apocalypse at Pioneer Works. Their writing appears in the New Museum exhibition catalog The Art Happens Here: Net Art Anthology (Rhizome, 2019), Interjection Calendar 005 (Montez Press, 2020), and Smoke + Mold (issue 4, forthcoming 2021).

Kit holds BAs in Visual Art and Literary Arts from Brown University and is presently completing their MFA in Graphic Design at RISD. They are based in Brooklyn by way of Providence and Koreatown, Los Angeles.
