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.
