ARTIST / CURATOR / JOURNALIST / SYNTHESIST
Laura Horne is an interdisciplinary artist, writer, and curator born in England and educated in Canada. She currently lives and works in New York City. Her work explores contemporary themes in photography and the history of objects. She is concerned with cultural relativism and surveillance capitalism, and uses her work to understand our collective identities and the conflicts between the visible and the invisible.
These conflicts refer to the ways in which we are influenced by forces that we cannot see or easily understand. This includes the algorithms and data mining used by surveillance capitalism, as well as the hidden biases and power dynamics that shape our collective identities. The use of sound in Horne's work adds another dimension to her process which aims to shed light on the elements that shape our experiences and challenge us to think critically about the world around us.
