Louis Morlæ’s practice utilizes digital rendering, design and manufacturing processes to produce sculpture, video and installation.
Through his sculptures, which reference domestic and industrial design language, Morlæ proposes a 're-worlding', creating objects that question technological constructs and explore our potential to dream of new worlds.
Using digital manipulation and animation, Morlæ brings his sculptures to life; they become the central characters in his long form video works, engaging with ideas of the metaverse, escapism and the boundless speculative potential of these digital spaces.
