Laura Luna Castillo (1991, Mexico) is a multimedia artist currently based in Prague. She began her artist practice focused in photography, later developing an interest in video and film. While working with these media, she began to experiment with other forms of artistic expression which allowed her to explore the mechanisms of memory, narrative and the imagination. Within these explorations, sound became a central element of her practice, combined with her passion for machines, repetition, textures, generative narratives and the complexities of memory and associations. She has developed a variety of multidisciplinary projects, where different materials and technologies coexist, taking the form of audiovisual performances, objects, installations and interactive works. In 2014 she released an experimental album Isolarios with the independent label Baba Vanga, where the sound and composition were made using generative and mnemonic processes.
