AMOR MUNDI: Aata
May 6, 2pm
“We are connected. Degrees of separation are becoming closer as communication and technological
advancements amplify. As the planet is revealing the large pocks of capitalist intentions, our
consumption patterns are becoming normative in our natures. Flip: A Consuming Game addresses
contemporary consumption and the people, resources and the methods it draws from.”
Aata is an artist who practices in printmaking, photography, video, and sculpture. Her practice
involves non-traditional materials in forms such as inflatable structures and large scale pop-up
books. Aata is influenced by Oceania futurism and synchronicity. Her recent work contemplates
the considerations of consumption and detailed freedoms. She is involved with Oceania literary
collectives and collaborative projects.
Aata has studied with Gaye Chan and Charles Cohan from the University of Hawaii at Mānoa.
She has worked alongside artist, Edgar Heap of Birds. This year, Aata’s work can be viewed at
the ‘Yirramboi Festival’ in Melborne, Australia and at ‘Ae kai, A Culture Lab on Convergence’,
Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center.
