Louis Braddock Clarke

Hack Lab (IST) and Interactive Media Design 3

Louis Braddock Clarke teaches the Hack Lab (IST) at the Bachelor Graphic Design programme of the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK).

Louis Braddock Clarke works as researcher and creative practitioner interpreting notions from domains of art, geography, physics and philosophy. Through this multi-disciplinary approach, an experimental enquiry unfolds blending scientific and conceptual theories to materialise in contemporary mediums.

Through the production of ‘Geo-tools’ Braddock Clarke measures and records ancient, current and future surfaces of the Earth. He is especially drawn to the techno-centric layers of human activities where electromagnetism, bio-mineralisation and geological sonics can be glimpsed and listened to.

His work has been shown in museums and galleries as well as site-specific venues of warehouses, shipping ports, hilltops and cinemas throughout the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Brazil, and China. He graduated in 2019 from the Graphic Design department at the KABK with the award-winning project Untangling Noises of Matter. During 2020/2021 Louis received the Talent Development Award from Creative Industries Fund NL, and is an associate lecturer at HfG Karlsruhe.
