Louise Beer (UK associate) uses installation, moving image, photography and sound to explore humanity’s evolving understanding of Earth’s environments and the cosmos. Louise creates objects and experiences that reflect the incomprehensible nature of reality, from the ocean floor to the night sky.

As a UK associate artist during Delfina Foundation’s second season of science_technology_society programme, Louise will be researching how light pollution has contributed to the current levels of biological decline, and how our relationship to the environment changes when the night sky becomes hidden behind the effects of artificial light.

Louise has an MA in Art and Science from Central Saint Martins and is co-director of Pale Blue Dot Collective, Lumen, super/collider and Print Science. Louise has exhibited across the UK and internationally, including the Moscow Biennale for Young Art (Russia), onboard sailing vessel AVONTUUR with Art Science Exhibits (Mediterranean), Today Art Museum (China) and the Dunedin School of Art (Aotearoa New Zealand).

Louise has recently participated in the Moscow Museum of Cosmonautics Space Art Summer School 2020 and has forthcoming residencies at The Arts Centre Te Matatiki Toi Ora, Aotearoa New Zealand and BigCi in Australia, as an Environmental Art Award 2020 winner.
