Artists / Louise K. Wilson


Louise K. Wilson incorporates scientific enquiry into her work. During her residency at Grizedale in 2000, Louise researched the Blue Streak, a rocket system which began its life as an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile in the late 1950s. Rocket Engine tests were made at Spadeadam, east of Carlisle, where Louise visited the site and spoke to those involved in the design and construction.

The result of her investigation has been a series of video works, exhibitions, tours and talks & events and a fascination with the fields of industrial and military history that continues to this day.
