Aaron Pexa | Artist-in-Residence at The Studio

Aaron Pexa's work spans multiple mediums, from video and installation to sculpture and performance, and his goal is always to create a sense of bewilderment. He takes everyday environments and subverts them by introducing new artifacts and narratives that stimulate wonder and “bring people out of the pull of predictability,” he says. For his residency in September and October 2018, Pexa incorporated the old English idea of “werifesteria,” which means to wander longingly through the forest in search of mystery. At the center of his project is a stop-motion animation featuring glass dioramas and other glass elements created using kiln casting, sand casting, hot sculpting, and pâte de verre. Hear from him about his experience as an artist-in-residence at The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass.
