Meredith James works in video, sculpture, and theater to explore mechanisms of perception and the fallibility of observation. Seeking to reveal the surprising and disorienting potential of the world around us and explore a new means of storytelling, she makes use of optical phenomena like reflection and perspectival shifts. Her work incorporates familiar domestic objects and environments, often as the contained setting for very small-scale interiors in which her narratives unfold.
