Amy Lauren is a filmmaker/artist working at the nexus between research, education and artistic practice.
Her work pulls focus on elemental stories of water, earth and air. Turned toward immersive storytelling as a way to combine the perceptual and epistemic aspects of scientific observation, Lauren asks how new modes of narrative experience can facilitate learning about climate science that calls for engagement and participation in the natural world.
Lauren is a graduate of the Interdisciplinary Documentary Media Practices MFA program at the University of Colorado Boulder. She collaborates with researchers to translate their groundbreaking work into captivating visual stories that make the complex world of academic research more approachable to a broader audience.
