Margaret McCarthy is a sonic and installation artist from Boston and currently based in Chicago. Her audio work spans electronic and acoustic composition. She is interested in creating installations and art events that allow the audience to have a direct and playful experience. The way that her visual and experiential works deal with physicality stems from sound, her first artistic language. In her work, she explores a visceral relationship with space and atmosphere, as well as themes of geologic motion and time. Lately she has been working with plants and plastic and dirt. She is a recent graduate of Oberlin College and Conservatory.
