Louise Lawlor

 

Having recently received my Masters degree in Digital Media at University of Lincoln, I have an interest in human interactivity and how the natural and the digital can come together to contrast or compliment. Questioning the human and its place in the world through an experimental approach and the combination of web based interactive outputs and physical materials based sculptural elements. Through my studies I have explored theoretical concepts such as the Anthropocene, ethics of the human and non-human and practice based methodologies. I am keen to combine theory and practice in order to produce outcomes that an audience can interact with, leaving them considering their ethical impact on the experience. 

 

I am also a part of the co_LAB research group at University of Lincoln set up by lecturers within Lincoln School of Film & Media, through this I explore how staff and students can come together to produce innovative solutions. I recently took part in the project co_LAB @ Web We Want Festival, bringing together students from Lincoln School of Film & Media, School of Computer Science and School of Psychology to work collaboratively with staff to produce a workshop and installation exploring surveillance, data and the web that was exhibited at The Web We Want Festival at The Southbank Centre in London.
