Louis’ approach to sculpture is to use 3D scans of people in conjunction with digital tools and 3d printers. He makes the point of only using 'organic data' or data derived from the real world rather than created by a computer.
Louis' experience with scan data and 3d printers started in 2002. In 2009, he and a friend Simon Bethune built the first open source machine in Australia. He has since experimented and developed new techniques that apply software, scanning, 3d printing and casting to his sculpture practice.
Louis won the inaugural Mt Buller Sculpture prize in 2013. Last year saw his sculptures represented in every major sculpture award in Australia.
