French-American artist Sarah Meyohas centers her practice within emerging technologies. Working in media from cryptocurrency to augmented reality, she enlists the natural world as references, network as medium, and the specular as a mode of contemplation. Rose petals act as a metaphor for the binary language of digital communication, augmented reality birds flock in accordance with the stock market index, and foliage is visually pulled into a boundless void through the artist’s ongoing two-way mirror photographic series. By merging traditional mythologies and clichéd objects of beauty with contemporary digital mediums, Meyohas enacts a visual language for the systems, algorithms, and technologies that influence our daily lives.
Meyohas’s ongoing Speculations series represents the boundlessness of the technological world using specular tactics. The photographic workcasts a visual spell strongly reminiscent of the processes in which we exist and navigate within digital platforms.
Meyohas exhibits her work internationally, with solo exhibitions in New York at Red Bull Art Center, Nahmad Projects in London, Gallery Pact in Paris, and Disjecta Contemporary Arts Center in Portland Oregon. Her work has traveled to institutions including the Barbican in London, the Jameel Arts Center in Dubai, the Ming Contemporary Art Museum in Shanghai, and the New Museum in New York.
Meyohas holds a B.S. in finance from the Wharton School and a B.A. in international relations from the University of Pennsylvania, and in 2015 received an M.F.A. from Yale University.

“By using the natural world as her references, network as her medium, and the specular as her mode of contemplation, Meyohas’ Speculations offers a timely and aesthetically stunning depiction of the growing darkness that is our technological dependence.”
- Curator Julia Greenway for Pact Gallery
“Meyohas considers her photographs to engage in deeper, meaningful questions around “the void” and “the sublime”, even dabbling in the very nature of our contemporary anxiety-ridden experience. “
