Laura's work spans from exhibitions to performances and journals and texts, and is very interdisciplinary. She is currently working on some new outputs that will be available in RADAR soon. One particular output will be featured in "Trans-what? and Everything Else". For more information and to learn more about Laura's research, check out her website.
