Laura Gede's performance marks the culmination of a brief residency at Rhizome in which she will have finalized a self-published book of writing and created an immersive exhibition space styled to the tone of her written work. Her performance will involve live projected type-writing projected in the immersive space. The goal is to create a unique and performative voice with no voice at all; to create a space and a visual platform for words to move beyond their assigned meanings and for their shape and speed to become a story even beyond the words themselves.
Laura Gede is a director, writer, performer, and freelance production designer in the Baltimore/DC area. She graduated from Towson University with an honors degree in Electronic Media and Film and Theatre: Design and Production, and studied at FAMU International in Spring of 2016. She is currently the Executive Director of the Maryland Film Industry Coalition, a non-profit in Baltimore, Maryland. While she is not doing freelance design or assistant directing work for commercial productions in the area, she works on local theatrical productions with ACME theatre company and on local film productions with Lux Daze Media, of which she is a creative team member. Her video work has been on display at numerous local film festivals and most recently at the Civil Rights and Civil Wrongs exhibit at the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh.
