Artist Statement.Aaron Smith.& B.E.Fisher
brandy, these are both too short and require a bit more investment...
Through the use of new media and found imagery, Aaron Smith deals with how information and advertisement is delivered to society and the relationship between function and non-function. He brings up questions concerning our awareness and recognition of information and its media driven filters. Addressing how information enters our unconscious Smith asks the viewer to re-consider the function of an object or image.
Through the use of sound, text and new media, B. E. Fisher explores the intersection of utopic ideals, the complex nature of language and our inability to truly understand one another. Fisher’s work is meditative, suggesting a search for truths, asking the viewer to reconsider the effect of language and our dependency on answers.
