Laura DeutchArt Form(s):
As an educator and artist, I'm interested in developing creative ways that we can use media arts to gain greater personal and social agency in our lives. Through the creation of documentary videos, interactive websites and collaborative projects, my vision is that media can offer people new ways to understand, interpret and engage with themselves and one another
