Technology will be an ally on our inner journey, empowering us to rediscover the knowledge of our bodies.
Laura Papke is an interdisciplinary designer and artistic researcher, currently living and working in the Netherlands. With a keen interest in the intersection of ecology, culture, and mental health, her work investigates new perspectives on healing processes and care practices in a technology-driven world. She brings together science and spirituality, drawing inspiration from queer ecologies, techno-feminism, and shamanic practices. Her graduation project in Social Design from Design Academy Eindhoven Sonic Driving was nominated for the Planetree Design Award 2022 and presented at various events, including Dutch Design Week 2022 and New Now Festival 2023. Laura is recently continuing her research on interoception — the perception of inner-body activities — and the process of synchronization, which she further incorporates in her embodied sound experiences.
