Margaret Seymour is interested in the social and cultural characteristics of networked media, however her artworks aren't always 'screen-based'. Instead she creates objects and installations that echo the temporal and spatial displacements we experience living in an electronically connected world.
Her works have been shown in group exhibitions with a variety of themes: Place and Image (Articulate Project Space, 2019), Footsteps in the Corridor (ArticulateUpstairs, 2018), The Sceptical Image (SCA Galleries, University of Sydney, 2014), La Lune: Energy Producing Art (Long Reef Headland, Sydney, 2014) and Electroscape: The Here and Now of Digital Art (107 Projects, Redfern, 2014). Solo exhibitions include Tracker at Articulate Project Space in 2013 and Shiver and Disappear at Artereal Gallery Project Space in 2012.
