Avital Meshi is a California based New Media Artist. She creates interactive installations and performances which invite viewers to become engaged with new technologies in an unusual way. The entanglement between the body and the technology reveals new aspects of identity and social connections and provokes conversations regarding role-playing, identity tourism, cultural appropriation, virtual life and artificial intelligence. Meshi works with technologies such as AI, VR, Video games and social media. Meshi holds an MFA from The Digital Art and New Media program at UC Santa Cruz and a BFA from the School of The Art Institute of Chicago. She also holds an MSc in behavioral biology from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
