Laura is an interdisciplinary artist whose work explores intersections of art, science, technology and craft. Her conceptually based projects examine the material manifestations of our mutable relationship with the human body. She reconsiders perceptions and representations of the corporeal with a range of traditional and new media techniques. She often combines the quotidian with the institutional to interrogate culturally constructed notions of order and disorder, function and dysfunction. Much of her work is inspired by experimentation with materials and processes, which she mines for their narrative implications and untapped potentials. For her latest solo exhibition “Embodied Objects” at Occurrence (Montréal, QC), Splan used biosensors to create data-driven forms and computer generated patterns for digitally fabricated sculptures, tapestries and works on paper.
In this talk, Laura will discuss some of her completed projects, her artistic process, and her plans for her residency at Integral Molecular.
