ABOUT

I’m Megan Watson, a visual artist from Hartlepool.

I am inspired by cyberculture theories, such as posthumanism, cyborg ontology, and glitch feminism. I use sci-fi themes to illustrate my perspective as a queer woman. Natural AI is the terminology I use to describe the ideology of my work, the amalgamation of nature, technology, and humanity is a criticism of anthropocentrism and an exploration of our similarities.

I use 3D rendering software to create animations, prints, and VR experiences. Notable work includes The Air in Cyberspace, a Sci-Fi fictional collection of works depicting cyberspace as a parallel universe. Commissioned by MIMA and The Auxiliary Gallery, and developed with support from Northern Film + Media and Tees Valley Screen. The Air In Cyberspace depicts the start of self-organising cyborg existence. It's a datascape of information seeping from the real and physical world to a geographical, abstract ocean of electric bioluminescence.
