About Laura

Perovich is a PhD student using art and technology to engage communities with environmental issues. She is currently focused on community-based projects around water quality, including (1) projects using data physicalizations to represent water quality violations from local oil storage facilities, (2) projects building tools to visualize water quality data on site and in real time, and (3) projects to bring people into public blue green spaces to create art together. These projects also consider the social role of data and the ways in which measuring can become a mechanism for intervention. She participates in the human-computer interaction and data physicalization communities and her work has been shown in local galleries.
