RESEARCH INTEREST


Laramee's interdisciplinary artworks operate at the confluence of art and science. For thirty years her interest in the history and culture of science has enabled collaborations with physicists, hydrologists, geologists, biogeographers, and ecologists. By sharing innovations, art-and-science collaborations can energize action to initiate positive social change and promote awareness of environmental and health issues by directly involving communities, extending ways in which cultures imagine, create and understand.

Her recent creative work and research investigates the environmental and health impacts of atomic legacy sites. Through tracking the invisible traces left behind by the nuclear weapons complex and the nuclear energy industry, her work archives our shared atomic legacy. Zeroing-in on sites where contaminated water and land have impacted on indigenous populations, her art allows for multiple modes of visualizing the invisible; inspiring direct action through environmental social-sculpture interventions deployed into communities raise environmental awareness, and activate community participation in remediation efforts.

She is the founder and director of ART/MEDIA for a Nuclear Free Future. She is a Lifetime Member of the National Speleological Society, and is a member of the College Art Association, Leonardo, and the Society for Arts, Science and Literature.
