_ LAURA PERLONGO
COPYWRITER SOCIAL MEDIA CONTENT CREATOR
Laura Perlongo, with her work “post it”, observed from an adjacent glass room, the artists and audience and commented live with a sort of automatic writing on post it. It transformed along the 36 hours, and became very interactive until the glass became fuller with notes. The audience felt more and more comfortable to dialogue with her as she disappeared before them. In turn, she felt more exposed under time pressure to feed the social media with the immediacy of the exchange.
Laura Perlongo is an interdisciplinary creative whose work explores digital identity construction and its effect on experience, perception, storytelling and memory. Often using a journalistic approach to capture raw materials that she then decontextualizes, she creates an open-ended world of fantasy where everything actually kinda happened. A Detroit native, Laura has lived and worked in New York, Amsterdam and Los Angeles across multiple fields, most notably as an advertising writer and digital content director.
