Michael Smit is a Dutch artist who was for 20 years based in Silicon Valley and since 2018 is back in The Netherlands. He creates temporary, situation-specific art projects at public sites, as contexts for co-creation and worldmaking.

In a universe where everything is connected and relational he understands art as the creation of new meaning through dialogue between one self and the surrounding world. Michael Smit chooses to create work on-site, aiming to invite inclusive and accidental audiences to become artistic activators and co-creators. One could call him a relational or interventionist artist.

Approaching the world as his studio, for each project he chooses from a broad range of media (from drawing or painting to video projection, from solar-powered electronic message boards to conversations, etc) as it fits the inspiration, project and site.
