Melissa Kit Chow is an artist and designer whose work toys with perception and the human body. By subtly skewing everyday interactions with the environment, her pieces allow habits to be reexamined, challenged, and renegotiated. They allow for a reawakening of a sensorial spatial experience, highlighting the disjunction between what we know and what we experience.
Melissa Kit received her Master in Design Studies at Harvard Graduate School of Design. She began her studies at New York's School of Visual Arts in Illustration and completed her undergraduate education at Rice University in 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts in Visual and Dramatic Arts as well as in Policy Studies. In 2008, Melissa Kit was the recipient of The Roy and Hazel Zeff Fellowship. She has exhibited her work in New York City and her home town of Houston, Texas as well as internationally in Iceland, Bolivia, Spain, and Thailand.
She is a founder alongside Helena Slosar of mk+H a Boston-based art and design collaborative.
