Caroline Locke has been described as one of the UK’s most innovative interdisciplinary artists. For more than 25 years she has exhibited nationally and internationally and is widely known for her large-scale installation works, sound and water sculptures. Working with sculptural devices, new and old technology, sound, video and live elements, Locke makes works that are often sited in public spaces as well as in galleries and performance venues. Water and vibration are recurrent themes within her recent practice.
Work has been exhibited in Japan, Australia, USA, Germany, Denmark, Belgium, Holland, Ireland and the Czech Republic.
The sound sculpture ‘The Frequency of Trees’ is her most recent sound work and is now part of the Yorkshire Sculpture Park open air collection.
Born in Somerset, Locke is Senior Lecturer in Fine Art and a Principal Researcher within the Digital and Material Arts Research Centre at the University of Derby. She is also artist in residence at the Mixed Reality Laboratory at Nottingham University.
