DESCRIPTION
Aspen May's most recent work addresses the human capacity to experience wonder and describe all that is mysterious. Utilizing humor, Mays approaches profound questions of existence from the perspective of an amateur and non-scientist. This approach allows her to access a common desire to understand concepts that may feel outside of the grasp of the scientifically untrained.  Mays' body of work utilizes a wide range of photographic techniques from photogram and experimental light sources, to performance demonstration, sculpture made specifically for the camera, high-res scans, and video.  Mays' practice is once built around and engaged with photographic image making and nurtured by experimentation as both a methodology and a subject matter, but it is most engaged in a conversation about the fantasy of meaning and transcendence in the ordinary and prosaic.
