Laura Davidson is a writer based in London and an Associate Lecturer on MA Illustration and Visual Media at London College of Communication. She is also an Academic Support lecturer at Central Saint Martins and Camberwell.
Davidson’s writing has been featured by a-n, Instant Loveland, Doggerland, Rhizome, SculptorVox and Sluice. She has written reviews, interviews, features and catalogue essays. Recently she collaborated with the artist James Irwin by producing a speculative essay in response to Irwin’s work ‘The Edge’ which was exhibited on the online project space Skelf. The essay considers how the language of the sublime slips into our everyday lives - where we are apparently ‘deluged by data’ and receive ‘torrents of information’ when we inhabit the internet.
In her speculative writing Davidson is interested in where the natural world intersects with the digital and has explored this in an another essay, written in response to Andrew Benson’s exhibition ‘Under the Creosote’ at Space In Between, curated by James Irwin.
In 2017 she was selected for the a-n Writer Development Programme. She has recently completed a PgCert in Academic Practice and is an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
