Victoria Karlsson is an inter-disciplinary artist working across sound art and performance. In her practice, she explores cultural aspects of sound and listening, and she is particularly interested in intersections between sound, listening, queer theory and affect.

In her practice-based PhD research degree from CRiSAP, UAL, Victoria investigated expereinces of 'inner sounds', which she defines as "sounds we hear in our minds, similar to, but different from, and inner voice."  Through her practice, she explored experiences of inner sounds through performance, visual and text scores, and sculpture. Her research investigated our cultural attitudes and beliefs about inner sounds, and what insight those beliefs can give us into our broader relationship with sounds and listening.
