About the Artist- Laura Pullig

Laura’s practice encompasses building responsive sculptures and working on participatory arts projects. She create pieces that are responsive to people’s interaction and that respond to environmental changes, using sound, kinetics and light. Laura is especially interested in the links between science, technology and art.

Technology is often seen as something that alienates or distracts people from the environment, but Laura is interested in using it to re-enchant people with nature and natural systems. Her methodology relates to an interest in participation; using materials and techniques that can be applied to working with others. The materials she uses to prototype ideas are accessible and affordable, often combining the use of technology with craft techniques. Laura is interested in using technology that is perceived as basic or old in combination to achieve new ideas. This does not mean ruling out other more technological methods of working or production and further development of ideas using more complex technology. Laura’s influences include responsive architecture and e-textiles.
