Age: 21
Location: Priorslee, Telford
Wants to be: Artist

Continuing our celebration of truly talented young people who have worked with somewhereto_ over the last four years, we bring you Laura Mayall, a multi-disciplined Artist from Birmingham.

Laura is a pretty busy lady, with fingers in many pies! Currently she is pursuing art directing, working on BBC Doctors as a freelance Assistant Art Director. She is also studying a degree is Art and Design.

Her work spirals from digital technologies, computer aided design and filmaking as well as set and prop design.

Laura recently used somewhereto_ space for her imaginative installation project Sleepwalk. She worked with 9 other participants, collaborating to make an installation utilising the diverse range of skills within the group. The project combined set design, lighting exploration, prop making and artist direction to create a truly immersive environment for the audience to be able to experience the process of sleep and dreaming.

‘somewhereto_ has been a vital contact for the progress of our collaboration, assisting us in networking with different professionals, which enabled us to find a space to create our vision. With this we have been able to install, document and exhibit our project to get our art made public.’

We can’t wait to see what this truly creative collective do next.

After four years of Big Lottery Funding. somewhereto_ is winding down in all regions except London from 30th June. Find out more here.
