Lisa Hirmer is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Guelph, Canada. Her work is positioned in the overlap of visual arts, design, criticism, social practice and experimental forms of research. She often works under the pseudonym DodoLab, an experimental creative practice focused on exploring contemporary issues in relation to public beliefs about them.

Lisa’s work ‘Peak Peat’ was exhibited at White Moose as part of Soil Culture: Young Shoots from 16 April – 4 June 2016 and was created during her Soil Culture residency at Peninsula Arts, Plymouth University. ‘Peak Peat’ is a series of bulletin boards with postings that capture the wealth of ideas surrounding peat as a carbon sink gathered during her residency from both the researchers and the public, a hardback book containing the completed surveys from the residency as well as blank surveys that visitors are able to complete.
