"feel the strange magical beauty of the world outside of our constructed one."

Aaron has made all sorts of pictures with all sorts of cameras for a long time. He makes music videos and photographs for bands, as well as video art and photographic art at his studio in McGuffey Art Center. His augmented photo wall stretches the history of photography to its extremes, mixing the wet plate collodion photographic process from the 1850s with the digital projection mapping technology of today. 

aaron's Full ARtist Statement

I have been awed by Kasia's work ever since I first saw it-- it is full of magic and nature and all of the things I want my work to aspire to. I have always liked mixing old and new technologies so for this project I thought it best to stretch out the history of photography to its extremes -- mixing the wet plate collodion photographic process from the 1850s with digital projection mapping technology of today, with a couple of in between technologies thrown in for good measure. I want the audience to feel the strange magic beauty of the world outside of our constructed one. I have been making all sorts of pictures with all sorts of cameras for a long time. I make music videos and photographs for bands and video art and photographic art at my studio in McGuffey Art Center.
