Lauren Moffatt makes immersive environments using experimental approaches and narrative structures. She investigates the connections between physical and virtual spaces and bodies. Here, she is especially interested in the blurred boundary between digital and organic life. The artist works with a mix of traditional, obsolete, and pioneering technologies. These combinations lead to speculative fictions whose origins can often be found under real circumstances. Lauren Moffatt is interested in creating new worlds that can be populated by outsiders and loners.
Lauren Moffatt studied painting, the theory and practice of new media art, and audiovisual art at the University of Fine Arts (AU), the Université Paris VIII (FR) and at Le Fresnoy Studio National des Arts Contemporains (FR).
