Lauren Gault

“I am interested in exploring how an activity, acute materiality, intent, attitude or politic can be held or suspended within an object and be interrogated/replayed in new time. This approach acts as a way to understand how objects and materials can be communicative, or intangible or impossible encounters facilitated via the object/materials elastic relationship with other systems including time, geography and environment”
