About

Lauren.jpg

Interested in analogue processes and equipment, Lauren plays in its crossovers with the digital world. Using the camera, or anything with a similar function, to obsess on the overlooked and marvel at the mundane. 

 

Attracted to the everyday, she amalgamates resources, celebrating visual and material recycling and repurposing in her works. Her process translates medium specificities, often in rigorous and somewhat pointless ways. Digital pieces move backwards, only to come forwards again. Analogue works join with the screen, then to be rendered back into tactile pieces.

Lauren holds a BA in Photography from The University of Brighton (2017-2020).

b.1994 in Coventry (UK), she is now a London based artist.
