LAURA JAMISON

Jamieson’s practice is based on developing structures that allow unseen stories to be heard and unexpected connections to be made to both people and place in a way that creates new value. She is currently researching public information that influences daily life that is hidden in plain sight. Her work uses time intensive craft techniques or produces works of scale that allows her to spend time with the information she collects.
