Laura’s practice is based around memory and identity as a response to personal, cultural, and historical research. Her work utilizes a unique assemblage of traditional mediums within digitally constructed spaces to create immersive analogies of identity and memory composition. Medina engages in a practice of self reflection as a means to create a personal mythology. This mythology brings her closer to building new worlds, both real and imaginary, where the spectrum of identity and the connection to others is sacred.
