lauren woods is a conceptual artist whose interdisciplinary hybrid media projects—film, video and sound installations, socially-engaged public interventions, and site-specific work—engage history as a lens by which to view the socio-politics of the present. Her primary research traces racial histories in the built environment through monument/memorial work and informs her most current public projects. Driving woods’s critical and creative inquiry, is the question of how best to translate the practice of traditional monument-making into new contemporary objects of public memory that utilize new media.
