Full Bio: 

Meghan Trainor is an artist and doctoral student at the University of Washington's Center for Digital Art and Experimental Media (DXARTS). Her work explores the use of emerging and existing technologies and materials to help examine the aesthetics of near future environments, particularly where the physical and the digital world overlap. She is interested in the methods by which new technologies become emotionally important to us, and eventually form part of our nostalgic sense of history, or conversely, components of a dystopian landscape. Her themes and interests include the anthropomorphic machines, bionic humans, stories of time travel, alternate universes and other creative devices that allow us to both invent and digest advancing technology.

She is best known for her interactive and performance art created in part with RFID; a body of work that augments tactile interaction with audio outputs. Currently she is interested in examining the impact of brainwave controllers and 3D printers on our ability to create and transmit objects. Some of her previous adventures include a media internship at Honeybee Robotics during their participation in the 2003 Mars Exploration Rover Mission, a residency at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council's Swing Space and a presentation at the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona's Targeted Publics: Arts and Technologies of the Security City Symposium. She holds a Master's from the Interactive Telecommunications Program at New York University.
