Laura Turón is an active Mexican-American artist in the El Paso-Juárez US/Mex borderplex; her multidisciplinary art processes combine concepts of time, belongingness, and inclusion through collaborative work with the community, and non-objective designs that feature mark-making, ephemeral art, art with science, optical illusions, digital art, sculpture, immersive art, and community art installations.

The artist is also the creator of Paradox Traveling Art (2017), a traveling art installation project housed within a converted full-size school bus. The bus functions as an art gallery on wheels. Her most recent projects include a permanent public art sculpture in a roundabout for the city of El Paso, TX, and her project Paradox Immersive Art an immersive art gallery in El Paso, TX.

During her residency, she worked on photographing the Northern Lights and developing an interactive art installation inspired in The movement of the northern Lights.
