Laura Denning

Laura worked with the Crazy Glue group at Prince Rock Primary School in 2019 as part of the Reverberations project

Laura creates work that is site-responsive, with water as a constant motif. Her work crosses disciplines to explore natural, social and creative ecologies. Often collaborative and socially engaged, Laura’s work draws on experimental geography to explore embodied relationships that might reveal unseen connections between place, people and practices.

Laura ran a sound workshop with the Crazy Glue art group at Prince Rock school. This workshop introduced listening as a trigger for making visual work on the theme of water, weather and the oceans. The group responded through movement to the sounds of thunderstorms, then used paint to make maps of watery things. Using a hydrophone they were able to listen to underwater sounds, which they reimagined as forms and added to their paintings.
