Laura Burstow is an interdisciplinary artist who uses found materials to create kinetic sculptures and contemporary sound instruments. Her sound based practice originates from her background in classical music training and continues through an interest in the universality and omnipresence of sound.
Burstow recently completed a Bachelor of Fine Art with Honours. Her research interests include how sonic activation of materials can have a transformative outcome, how unskilled processes affect creative output; and from this, how skills are shared and developed through the creative arts.
She is currently an artist in residence with Susan Hawkins at Metro Arts, Brisbane. Burstow and Hawkins hope to exhibit their collaborative work in late 2017.
