What others have to say about Laura and her work
‘Laura Irving is professional, creative, responsive, friendly, lively, lovely, wonderful. I mean all of these adjectives with intense sincerity. I plan on working with her for years to come, so while I encourage you to offer her abundant well-remunerated freelance work, please don’t offer her so much that she’s not available to produce my upcoming 12-part series on bioluminescent cheese.’

‘A witty and beautifully crafted miniature feature that packed a great deal into its short span. “Beautifully mixed” said one judge, “arresting and entertaining,” “a total delight from start to finish”. This was “an uplifting subject, with a great reveal.” “And Funny!”

“Working with Laura over the course of the Waveform project has been an utter joy — to see her develop an idea from the original conception, to a work-in-progress sharing, right through to making a brilliant installation, was a privilege and Flatpack are very proud to have played a part in that journey. The way she’s explored an area of artistic practice (moving image) unfamiliar to her, and then create something so accomplished is a testament to her artistic vision, and hard work. I’m really excited to see Lambda Drive reach a bigger audience over the next year or two, and to see what Laura will make next.”
