In addition to her solo work, she also performs regularly as a member of Bioluminescence, a collaboration with video artist and composer R. Luke DuBois that explores the modality of human voice through live sound and interactive video.
For their performance Bricolage, Louise Ward and Joan Healy reappropriate readymade utilitarian objects, and with these objects they incorporate themselves into living functional assemblages. Over the sounds of DIY instruments, they add video and vocal harmonies to construct a multi-layered audiovisual environment that evokes memories of both chance encounters and predictable patterns in daily life.

She has performed/exhibited in venues both nationally and internationally including the Bergen Kunsthall, Norway; Multiplex, Amsterdam; Rua Red, Dublin; St Etienne Cite du Design Biennale, France; STRP Art and Technology Festival, Eindhoven; The Science Gallery, Dublin; Shunt, London; G126, Galway; the Wexford Arts Centre; Vantastival, Louth, and this summer will be performing in Stattbad in Berlin as part of the MART collective’s European tour.
