Laura's Mutants

Laura’s Mutants is a 13-minute long video that features a list of texts that, appearing in Walter’s signature bubble font, combine slang expressions from HIV science, the artist’s collaboration with UCL’s Towers Lab and the fields of art, architecture and popular culture. Walter found inspiration for the film in the terminology used at the lab, where a strain of virus is known as Laura’s Mutants is often referred to in meetings. The film encapsulates Walter’s interest in the possibilities of jargon to be taken out of context and become poetic.


The RNA Book

Walter's 'RNA Book' is the latest in a long line of artist's books of paintings that exploit the seam and the process of binding, unbinding and rebinding to compose new arrangements of images and texts. Each double page features a thick, sinuous line analogous to an RNA strand inside a capsid, which is being woven into a DNA strand.
