Laura Trevail, a writer and contextual artist who will be presenting work at our Mayven Festival, talks a bit about her work.

My work is to listen to the context of a place, a problem, a need or an idea, and to craft that information into experiences and opportunities that are both enjoyable and useful. I am a writer and artist weaving actions in connected technology, innovation and transport, with traditional theatre, writing, and visual art practice.

The world is made of love and fear, and not always in the right place. I’m interested in that. I’m interested in cause and effect. I’m interested in what we think we see.

I seek to play an active part in building a brave, exciting, kind, practical and exceptionally well functioning future for all of us. My training and background is in theatre, writing, sculpture, data relationships, human behaviour, horror, connected devices and value exchange. They play together well.

I aim to make glancing work with long-term resonance; like the memory of a kind word, or the lasting shiveriness of a ghost story. Sometimes it’s head stuff, sometimes heart, sometimes both. Always gut.
