Sam Kitch

Experimental Spatial Capture
Dynamic + Immersive Storytelling




ABOUT

I am a practice-based researcher and lecturer in Transmedia Storytelling for Illustration Animation at Kingston University, London. My work revolves around dynamic storytelling through interaction design, particularly within social and cultural contexts.
I explore the poetic potential of remote sensing technology as a means to augment forgotten landscapes and reconstruct collective memory.

With extensive experience in public-facing live projects, I have collaborated with stakeholders, arts councils, and local communities. My practice advocates for intentionally repurposing volumetric capture tools in visual communication design, fostering relationships with technology that embrace indeterminacy over exact representation.
