Laura Bigger is a multimedia artist whose work addresses the various relationships that exist among humans, animals, and ecosystems, particularly in terms of the food chain, raw materials, and the human tendency to exert control over natural systems. She received her MFA from the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, where she currently resides. Prior to graduate school, Bigger lived off the grid in subtropical New Zealand, serving as a family’s cook, gardener, and nanny, which proved to be a formative experience. She aspires to integrate urban permaculture into her life as an artist.
