Meg Moss CV

Meg Moss is a contemporary artist and a recent graduate of Gray’s school of art. Exploring both 2d and 3d, through drawing, photography and sculpture. Her practice focuses on the presence and prevalence of surveillance within our society and surroundings. She alludes to the notion that surveillance is everywhere and within everything, paying particular attention to urban infrastructure such as lamp posts, and how they ‘oversee’ everything from a vantage point. The work intends to anthropomorphise them and suggest that they too, are watching us: the metaphorical embodiment of surveillance. Meg aims to weave a metaphorical, speculative fiction with reality where within this narrative, these lamp posts watch over us all, like living things or technologically advanced beings. Usually, you look at a lamp post and feel a sense of warmth and safety, a light to aim for in the dark, or perhaps they go unnoticed. Presented within this context, these mundane objects can now be perceived as a threat or an enemy: portraying surveillance as ubiquitous, enveloping our everyday lives.
