Megan's work is influenced by the landscape of her native Nevada home as well as the vast prairies of the Midwest, being a twin, mapping and exploration, and countless hours of daydreaming. She creates site-specific installations that incorporate video and sound and constructs performative scenes that ultimately exist as photographs. Her latest work draws from accounts of arctic exploration and images from man's landing on the moon. She creates flags made from fabric and places them in the environment, marking those places as personal territory and mimicking the claiming of spaces that went on during early years of exploration. She is interested in the relationship between internal space and physical space and how they inform each other and influence our interpretation of the world around us. Other forms her artwork takes include artist's books, interactive collaborations, textiles projects, and narrative videos.
