After her graduation in the monumental arts at the Sint-Lucas Academy in Ghent, Laure-Anne Jacobs took part in several artistic projects and exhibitions. Most of these initiatives were focused on art integrated contents. The upcoming digital media formed an important role within the evolution of the work of the artist. In her work, Laure-Anne Jacobs puts an emphasis on photography, video or film, internet and interactivity and the most recent evolutions of media technology. In her expressions, Laure-Anne Jacobs uses the most adapted tools for both content and form of the artistic work. The artistic realization is for the artist a concrete expression, based on the interpretation of individual experiences and interaction with social surroundings and reality.

The audiovisual media and digital networks are for Laure-Anne Jacobs an incentive to question the arts. In this optic, integration and interaction with the essential social pillars form the characteristics of the works of the artist. Public space, society and the world are the favorite framework to create interaction and give expression to the underlying meanings. Interpretations of an existing reality are transformed in a concrete realization with tools such as digital printings, photographic images, movies and installations.

Laure-Anne Jacobs is co-founder of the digital media platform Larbitslab, and is working since four years with Bénédicte Jacobs, Researcher in Social Media at the Free University of Brussels. Together they formed a duo called LarbitsSisters. Larbitslab is being founded in 2011 and is an interdisciplinary creative research group on digital visualization located in Brussels, involving artists and scientists around issues raised by the advent of digital technologies such as privacy, digital identity and 2.0 practices.
