To celebrate and contextualise her exhibition at Brighton Festival 2011 Australian artist Lynette Wallworth gave a gallery talk at the University of Brighton galleries.

Lynette Wallworth’s artistic practice spans digital media, video installation, photography and film. Her work has been presented at the Auckland Triennial, Melbourne International Arts Festival and the Sydney festival as well as being exhibited internationally from Arnolfini, The Young Vic and Festival d’Aix en Provence in Europe to New York’s Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in the United States.
Wallworth’s responsive environments lead visitors to transcend their everyday selves and to connect with universal themes that include and describe their own existence. Always experimenting with the newest digital technologies, Wallworth’s ability to build a sense of community and compassion with these tools is startling. Beauty, revelation and wonder are celebrated in her works, fusing mind and body through the fundamental means of the haptic and the optic, light and touch.
Lynette describes her intention as “bringing together technological advances and ancient understandings, new media and old practices, electronics and the electricity of human touch.”
