Research Interests

Processes of research are central to Louise’s practice and she frequently involves the participation of individuals from industry, museums, medicine and the scientific community in the making of work.

Her current research uses the medium of sound to ask philosophical and material questions about the spatio-temporal physicality of certain sites and our perceptions of them. She has traveled to numerous (military and scientific) sites including nuclear submarines, US listening stations, university halls, marine research environments, rocket launch sites and disused RAF bases in pursuit of the acoustics of resonant spaces. She has explored the ways in which technologies of the audible create new ways of engaging with overlooked traces of particular sites.
