In her most recent work, Louisa Chambers has been playfully rearranging systems, structures and repeated patterns. Appropriated references derive from architectural sources, scientific and mathematical educational manuals to the everyday drawing upon daily routines.  Science fiction like objects and landscapes that often feature, present alternative visual and virtual worlds where structures govern our society and technology rules.
