Data Blue is the result of a series of intimate filmed interviews conducted by Lambert whilst completing a residency in the icy winter lands of central Finland. The subjects are a collection of writers, academics, artists, and an astronomer who originate from the Antipodes, Africa, Asia, Europe, North and South America. Through a series of technical processes Lambert converts the sound and image from these interviews to data, the final outcome, a series of abstracted video and post photographic works. The work is presented in the manner in which it was captured, in the distinctive Finnish ‘blue moment’, a time just before sunrise and sunset where the world is enveloped in a solemn blue light. 

Kenneth Lambert is a conceptually driven artist whose practice investigates the human psyche through the lens of technology. His practice extends across digital media and installation. Lambert approaches his experimental art practice with the deliberation of a scientist and philosopher combined. His intention is to entice the viewer into a state that is self-reflective. Lambert’s work has been recognised with his inclusion in 2018 in the Churchie Emerging Artist Prize, Lismore Portrait Prize, Hidden Sculpture Walk and the Alice Prize. He is also the 2018 recipient of the Newington Armory Award: Artist in Residency and has recently completed 2019 Arteles Artist residency program in Finland.
