'Hal Life' translates concepts of acceleration pertaining to climate change. The process of acceleration had to contain the key factors, a change in velocity over time. I liken my process to that found in the study of physics, one hemisphere is the “Theoretical”, through mathematics there is an attempt to understand the forces that define the natural world. The second which is known as “Experimental” is the real world proof of the theories. There is a natural tension between theory and proof which I wrestle with as I transition between both hemispheres in order to create.” The piece was created using the artist as part of a body of work created for the exhibition 'Incandescent Bloom'.

Kenneth Lambert’s experimental practice embraces disintegrated matter and the inexorable expressions that reflect the human condition.
Lambert’s conceptual approach captures the contemporary zeitgeist by transposing themes found in science to illuminate current social issues and rising anxieties of our time. At the intersection of technology and the humanities, the artist’s investigations have led to works that utilise particle acceleration to relate to climate change and data translation technology to investigate digital autonomy. Lambert’s cross-disciplinary practice encompasses digital, film, expanded painting and installation.
Lambert draws on a diverse range of skills to thread through his artistic practice with a professional background that encompasses museum and exhibition design and film making. Since 2016 he has regularly exhibited in solo and group shows with Australian ARI’s and commercial galleries, including Artereal, Articulate project space. COMA and Galerie pompom. His work has featured in award shows in Australia and the USA. In 2019 he was named Grand Prix Prize Winner of the One-Self competition, which resulted in his work Data Blue featured at Scope Art Fair in Miami. In Australia, he has been a finalist in the Churchie Emerging Artist Prize, The Alice Prize, Incinerator Gallery Prize - Art for Social Change, The Fisher’s Ghost Prize, and Kilgour Art Prize. Lambert has also participated in artist residency programs, receiving the 2018 Newington Armory Residency. In 2019 he completed his first international residency at Arteles Creative Centre, Finland and in 2021 completed a 3-month residency program at Woodford Academy, the oldest surviving structure in the Blue Mountains.
