Working as an artist/curator, with a particular interest in interdisciplinary film practices and expanded cinema, Louise uses both analogue and digital methods for the production and presentation of installations and single screen works.
Having won several Arts Council bids to fund projects which explore the relationship between artistsic practice and technology, Louise has been able to produce and curate major international exhibitions. These projects have been hosted at the Brighton Digital Festival, The Observer Arts and other arts festivals in varying forms.
Louise produces a large programme of video art, film, performance and music for the Big Screen at the Latitude Festival in Suffolk each year. She has also curated screenings for many other exhibitions and festivals to include: Loop video art festival in Barcelona, Liverpool Biennale, Whitstable Biennale, Jerwood Gallery in Hastings, ESPS in St Leonards-on-Sea, Cinecity Film Festival in Brighton amongst others.
Currently Louise is working on an research project in collaboration with The Slade School of Art Research Centre called Motion in Form, which includes a series of exhibitions, research workshops and symposiums to explore the specific qualities of analogue film as an expanded art form.
