His work has been shown at the MOT Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo (2007), San Diego Art Museum (2007), as well as the Singapore Art Museum (2010 and 2011). Wit, who resides in Bangkok, is also involved in the city’s notable collaborative projects such as the Fat Music Festival and the Soi Project, an ongoing ‘laboratory’ project that fosters exchanges amongst artists and practitioners from a variety of disciplines.Wit’s interest in space and design is evident in his diverse artistic practice which includes installation and animation. His practice is known for its use of everyday materials to create interactive environments that draw audiences into the creative process of artmaking. ‘Not Quite A Total Eclipse’ is a motorised installation made of basic materials and cabling processes, and controlled by electronic programming, that describes the phenomenon of a planetary eclipse by exploiting the play between light and shadow.
