Published November 2005
Louise K Wilson is a visual artist, whose work includes installations, sound pieces and videos. Recent works spring from a curiosity about how flight affects our physiological states and psychological selves. She has participated in an experiment in zero gravity, co-opted a team of air traffic controllers in formation cycling on the runway at Newcastle Airport and been a passenger in an aerobatics plane looping the loop. Her research has involved associations with Montreal Neurological Institute, the Science Museum, the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training facility in Moscow, the RSPB and the Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service.
