Toby K is an award winning lighting, interaction and video designer.

In 2014 he created the Echo Tables, also for the Sydney Opera House that allowed participants to paint with light using their shadows. He recently lit the national and international tours of Incredible Book Eating Boy for CDP, the community theatre project Redfern Talks Back for the Sydney Opera House and the main stage of the 2014 Inside Out Festival at Manning Bar. At the Sydney Theatre Awards in February he won best independent lighting design for Sport For Joves 2014 production of Alls Well That Ends Well. In September this year he is taking The River Eats to South Korea. The River Eats is a collaboration with Justin Shoulder and was originally developed for Next Wave 2012 and presented by Arts House at North Melbourne Town Hall In interactive work he created Beatdice for Vivid Light 2015 which allowed participants to simultaneously build a light sculpture and a song by assembling cubes. Over 8000 people engaged with Beatdice during the event. In January 2015 he created Build The Music a month long installation for the Sydney Opera House that turned lego constructions into musical compositions.
