When we consider natural events of the last decade, such as global warming and cyclones, many can be directly traced back to the actions of humans and their effect on the environment. In this time we have witnessed some of the greatest innovations in technology and yet we still are at a loss to deal with the moral implications of our impact on this planet. Aidan’s studio project focuses on ways to digest and even celebrate these impending disasters by creating performance objects; objects and photographs that can link us to these events through their visual meanings. Research for the project is drawn from tribal solutions (ie, rain dance, totems, etc) and creating contemporary translations to ward off impending disasters.
