Communications Director is a multidisciplinary artist interested in the transformation of digital space to a private space. By building environments that deny physicality of objects that they create, Meg questions what we bring into the non-physical world and what stays behind. Their interest in the relationship between the digital and the physical was first realized while splitting their BFA at University of Cincinnati between photography and ceramics. This unique training in both digital and sculptural medias led their investigation to Cranbrook Academy of Art for an MFA in photography. Now based in Chicago, Meg continues their work and is a co-founder of Flex Collective and Bulk Space.
