What compels us towards things that move?

Laura Woodward focuses her research on the potential of system-based kinetic installations. These systems, often powered by water, develop through the relationships between materials, movement, time and the artists’ hands, with the system’s inherent logic driving its formal and systematic emergences. The works tease out considerations of agency within systems, and the empathic responses that may ensue when encountering these moving entities. For Triennial Voices, Laura Woodward has created a new video piece with text on screen titled "What Compels Us towards things that move?"
