Her practice explores interconnection, intercultural conversations, collaboration and sensory experience.

An editorial board member of The Capilano Review, Low’s essays and criticism are published in catalogues and numerous periodicals over the past 17 years. Low is a recipient of Canada Council for the Arts, British Columbia Arts Council, and City of Vancouver funding, and has served on numerous juries including the VIVA and Sobey Art Awards. Currently a SSHRC Doctoral Fellow at Simon Fraser University's School for Contemporary Arts, Low's research-creation focuses on artists sensing otherwise through intermedial and intersensorial forms to access different ways of knowing, feeling and remembering, and interdisciplinary explorations of synaesthetic resonances across art, neuroscience and the humanities.
