:"For the radio station see KMA (AM)"

KMA is a collaboration between media artists Kit Monkman and Tom Wexler (UK). KMA's work is primarily focussed on the use of projected light to transform spaces and the interactions of people within those spaces.

KMA are best known for large scale public interactive works that use projected light and motion tracking technology to create immersive digital 'playgrounds' in existing public spaces. 'Flock' - based on 3 sections of Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake - typifies this approach, and was presented at Trafalgar Square, London as a co-commission by the Institute of Contemporary Arts and The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.
