Meghan Judge is an artist currently holding a postdoctoral research position at the SARChI Science Communication, Stellenbosch University. She holds a PhD in Fine Art from the University of the Witwatersrand where she was a fellow in the Oceanic Humanities for the Global South project at WiSER. Her doctoral dissertation focused on understanding human-ocean relations through elemental media and weathering activities while developing a creative praxis for inquiry. She is currently working, both in writing and creative practice, through sonic sensory palettes that rearrange oceanic perceptions away from human exceptionalism and colonial ideals. Judge has participated in, curated and organised artistic exchanges and exhibitions in the Southern African and Indian Ocean region. Her recent solo exhibition titled Static Drift showed at the Wits Art Museum, and recent film work travelled in global film festival circuits.
