I create time-based, immersive experiences using both physical and digital media. My work frequently explores the perils and promise of technology, reflecting my urban surroundings and immersive relationship with computers. My dual roles as a teacher and an artist inspire me to examine how technology shapes our understanding of ourselves and the natural world. With a deep concern for ecological issues, my installations are performances and my processes are experimental. The interactions between my materials and viewers often produce unexpected results, and I welcome the element of chance in my work.


Born in Texas and raised in California, Margaret Noble’s experimental artworks have been exhibited nationally and internationally. Her interdisciplinary work resides at the intersection of sound, sculpture, and performance. She holds a BA in Philosophy from the University of California, San Diego, and an MFA in Sound Art from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Noble’s work is influenced by the dynamic, dance music cultures of southern California which flourished from the 1980s to the 1990s and later led her to perform as an electronic music DJ in the underground club community of Chicago. In 2004, she branched out from the dance floor into experimental sound art for new audiences which intersected the electronic sound scene and the visual arts community. During this transition, Margaret created sound works for collaborative projects in video, dance, and object theatre. Her interdisciplinary artworks have now evolved into interactive sculptures and installations investigating technology, psychology, and environmentalism.
