Lauren Moffatt is an Australian artist working with immersive environments and experimental narrative practices. Her works, often presented in hybrid and iterative forms, explore the paradoxical subjectivity of networked bodies and the blurred boundaries between digital and organic life. In 2021 she was awarded the DKB VR Art Prize (DE), in 2022 the I Certamen Internacional de Arte Digital (ES) and the Revista MAKMA Aquisition Prize (ES). Lauren completed her studies in painting, new media art theory and practice, and audiovisual creation at the College of FineArts (AU), Université Paris VIII (FR) and Le Fresnoy Studi National des Arts Contemporains (FR).

Lauren’s works have been exhibited at Haus der Kulturen der Welt (DE), Centre Pompidou (FR), La Gaïté Lyrique (FR), SXSW (US), Haus am Lützowplatz (DE), UNSW Galleries (AU), Daegu Art Museum (KOR), Le Grand Palais Ephémère (FR), SAVVY Contemporary (DE), FACT Liverpool (UK) The Sundance Film Festival (US) ZKM (DE), Q21 Freiraum (AT) and at Hartware MedienkunstVerein (DE). She lives and works in Berlin and Valencia.
