Hutt's Art work ranges across a wide continuum starting with the purely digital aesthetic forms of Interactive Net Art, to Game Engine Technology, through new media variants of Sound and Video Installations, and fully arriving in the physical realm with hybrid works blending digital and traditional processes, such as aesthetic forms to create Photo-silkscreen on various materials' substrates, and digitally mediated Painting on canvas. Hutt's Art works have been shown nationally and internationally, most recently at The Islip Art Museum, East Islip, Long Island, New York, where it was reviewed in the New York Times, featuring Hutt's Greek Inspired, digitally mediated Paintings.
