Kaleider is a production studio

We make cool stuff with meaning for people to experience all over the globe

What we do

  • We play at the edges of installation, live performance and digital.
  • We make the work of our Artistic Director, Seth Honnor, almost always in collaboration with other artists, technologists, scientists, producers, or researchers.
  • We commission others to make work, often bringing diverse groups together to respond to a specific context or opportunity.
  • Kaleider Studios is in Exeter, UK, where we host and support a Resident Community of creative individuals and companies, many of whom we collaborate with and who collaborate with each other.
  • We love strong partnerships. We are Co-Executive Producers, with Watershed, on the South West Creative Technology Network. It’s a three year project working between industry and Higher Education to innovate in the areas of immersion, automation and data, across the south west of England.

Why we do it

  • Kaleider’s aim is to bring people together to respond creatively to some of the greatest challenges of our time.
  • We want to create extraordinary, human centered experiences, products and services that help us all towards a better understanding of ourselves and our world.
