Jess Kilby will tell you a story any way she can. (Or more often, she’ll get you to tell yourself a story.) She uses writing, photography, video, objects, systems, code and whatever else seems like it might do the trick. Her practice-led PhD, The Parallaxis, proposes that play is a knowledge practice which enables us to respond creatively to the unknown. It is a game of urban magic that she invites the public to play.

Jess is also the Pervasive Play developer at Pop Up Playground and a sessional lecturer in Media and Communication at RMIT University.
