Being a Digital Producer

My name is Maya Gabrielle

I work in London, as the Senior Digital Producer for the National Theatre, and live in Brighton.

I sit on the Digital Strategy Committee for BAFTA and LIFT.

On this blog I post about the arts, digital, the National Theatre and anything else that tickles my fancy.

I love to talk at conferences and sit on panels, so check out my biography if you are looking for a digital rent-a-mouth. All thoughts and comments are happily my own and are not the opinions of any organisation I may be affiliated with.

Cool stuff

Origami Robots Fold Themselves and Walk Away

Watching this video I get a creepy, crawly vision of a future where these creatures crawl around like pests patrolling the city. The future of robotics is awesome and insanely scary.


Amsterdam-based artist Cedric Laquieze (previously featured here) recently completed a fascinating new series of his exquisite taxidermy Fairies. These delicate sculptures are primarily composed of parts from many different insect species, but if you look closely you’ll notice bones, seeds and even a few scorpion parts as well.

Visit Cedric Laquieze’s blog for many additional images and to check out some of his other enchanting creations.
