Meg Mitchell's work operates at the intersection of the material, the textual, and the public sphere. Often referencing seemingly disparate things such as weather, data flows, plant sexuality and technological systems, the work seeks to reconcile the opposing forces used in its metaphorical construction. She uses humor to subvert formalist interpretations of her work, and to play with the boundaries between the conceptual and the physical spaces her work occupies. Mitchell borrows from a diverse range of sources such as Greek drama, contemporary advertising, camp, cinema, art history, and media representations of technological progress. The work takes on various forms such as sculptural installations, mobile applications, printed ephemera, horticultural installations, and public performances. She is currently an Assistant Professor of Digital Media in the Department of Art at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
