Event description
As part of Someoddpilot's 20 Year Anniversary we are hosting Sonnenzimmer and AppleButter Animated at Public Works for an artist talk.

About this Event

Our collective ideologies are always one step behind our impulses. We fear the changing world, but we embrace material innovations, oftentimes unaware of their implications. Our actions are recorded and commanded through various layers of labor: from human gesture to robotic movements. Our impulses end up as part of a greater process, one we don’t fully grasp yet. In the exhibition “I’m Not Trying to Change Anything, I’m Just Changing”, we explore this conundrum through a series of graphic works, animation, and objects.

These works visit the crossways between gesture and intention and aim to collapse the space between seeing and feeling to encourage a shift in perspective.⠀

She is a graduate of Columbia College Chicago with a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design and a minor in Visual Arts Management. She is currently a Masters of Arts candidate at School of Visual Arts. As a curator, Ashley’s work revolves around creating spaces that combat social stigmas through both visual and literary narratives in aims of rehumanizing marginalized communities. Ashley’s curatorial work has been highlighted in the Chicago Tribune and independent magazines. As a designer, Ashley has worked on a variety of projects through her independent studio practice at Blk, ranging from branding to website development. Ashley is an alumni of The Art Institute Of Chicago’s Andrew Mellon Academy and has worked with a variety of art spaces such as Acre Residency, 6018North, Chicago Design Museum, Hume Gallery and many more.
