Megan Wilson is a visual artist based out of San Francisco. She creates large-scale installations that incorporate traditional crafts and decoration. Wilson explores the meaning and value of “home;” Buddhist principles of impermanence and generosity; beauty and ornamentation; feminism; and the intersections between art/life/architecture/design. Her public projects explore and challenge socio-political structures and their impact on community and culture. Once again, I found Wilson's work to be inspiring and relevant to my EMP; especially as she uses such a unique technique to create her work. She also has an interest in the environment, communities and architecture, which too supports my brief on Environmental Restrictions and how we are impacting on our environment.
Wilson is inspired by patterns and textiles and the relationship between evolution and structured environments as well as the decline in organic nature.
