PROJECTS

Through arts-based research, LaFleur's projects develop out of extensive archival research, utilize technology as a poetic tool, and provide a radical space for reimagining our personal and collective struggles in the 21st century.

 

Often collaborative, her projects are series-based spanning multiple years to complete. This page highlights the largest projects from 2018 - 2022.

A biennially produced installation that combines video with large-scale architectural fringe to reflect on queerness in a contemporary and historical context.

Inspired by declassified documents relating to the “fruit machine,” a military device used by the U.S. and Canadian government during the Cold War to detect LGBT individuals, this series examines the semiotics of fruit in relation to the queer body. Glass works were produced during an artist residency at the Museum of Glass.

Coded Glass consists of a series of videos produced as part of an Immersive Scholar Fellowship through the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Using 3D animation and conceptual art strategies, pubic data relating to the #MeToo movement was translated into a series of virtual stained glass windows. This series created a new visual vocabulary to reimagine digital activism as a sacred space. In 2019, data from this project was acquired into the #MeToo Digital Media Collection at the Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America at Harvard
