Henry Lai-Pyne

Henry Lai-Pyne is a Naarm/Melbourne based new-media artist working across moving image, live multi-media performance, game design, and broadcasting. His work centres symbiotic relationships between the human and screen-focused technology and media. Henry’s creative practice often involves ‘kitbashing’, the merging of mixed-medium processes and found matter to create new narrative, symbology, and world-building. 

In 2023, Henry completed an Activators Residency at Chunky Move with experimental street-dance collaborators Jahra Wasasala and Ooshcon, within that context TADRA and other visions, a mixed-media dance performance, was developed and presented as part of Frame Biennale 2023. This project led to Henry, Jahra, and Ooshcon’s awarded 2023 CultureLab residency at Arts House (Naarm / Melbourne) and Basement Theatre (Aotearoa / New Zealand). Henry is currently in residency at Centre for Projection Art, where his works are being presented at Gertrude Street Projection Festival, Federation Square, and Seventh Gallery. 

Henry’s individual and collaborative work has been featured at SOFT CENTRE (Eora/Sydney), ACMI, Arts House, AsiaTOPA, Melbourne International Film Festival, AIDLAB Hong Kong, Afterpay Australian Fashion Week, Berlin Art Film Festival, and Montreal Independent Film Festival.
