Lara is an artist and PHD candidate at the University of the West of England’s Digital Culture Research Centre (DCRC), focused on engaging audiences in debate about the monetary, banking and financial system through participatory art. Recent works include: the Autonomous Teller Machine (2018), a confused ATM activated through the insertion of a bank card which quizzed audiences about the 2008 financial crisis via a receipt printer; I-D coin (2018), a speculative design film short listed for the Future of Money Award; and BankRUN (2017), a self-standing ATM from which Lara dispensed 200 hand-printed banknotes creating a ‘bank run’.
