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.

I came out of there realising I’d been 'through the Kaleider' much in the same way Mr Benn in the 1970’s children’s programme did something quite ordinary like go shopping and came out of the shop having been on a pretty amazing adventure!
