Lawrence Lek, MA (Cantab), AADipl

Lawrence is an artist whose installations use physical and virtual media to examine the relationship between natural and artificial forms. He trained at Cambridge and the AA. He is currently working on an installation at Cold Harbour Gallery in Brixton, and an interactive sound and projection project at the Russian Club Studios in Dalston. In 2011-12 he will be attending the Cooper Union␣s new postgraduate research programme to develop AR.boreal, an inhabitable sculpture that grows according to online interaction. His projects were featured in the inaugural issue of the White Review, the UK␣s first crowd-funded arts journal and his video and sound art projects have been performed at the ICA, the Rich Mix cinema, and the Roundhouse.

He has previously worked with Charles Tashima, Ken Yeang and Foster + Partners, and was lead designer for a series of inflatable tensile canopies for a 130ft carbon-fibre racing yacht with Kite-Related Design. He has taught architecture and design on a part-time basis since 2005 and was visiting critic for the 2010 AA SummerMake workshop in Hooke Park.
