Laura Splan's conceptually driven work employs a variety of media including sculpture, video, photography, digital media and works on paper. Her objects and images interrogate the visual and textual manifestations of our cultural ambivalence towards the human body. She often uses found objects and appropriated sources to explore socially constructed perceptions of beauty and horror, order and disorder. Her projects explore cultural intersections of art, science, craft, design, technology, ritual and feminism.
