Howdy. My name is Aaron Valdez, I am a film and video artist originally from Houston, Texas now living in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Over the years my work has taken on many forms: Super 8, 16mm, 16mm multiple projection performance and installation, video installation, 16mm found footage films, hand-painted film, culture jamming video, videoblogging, and internet video remix.
I’m a collector of boring landscapes and celebrity workout VHS, serving as a guest blogger at Everything is Terrible for a time. I’ve spent the last six years plundering tv and the internet for the remix collective Wreck & Salvage (w/ Erik Nelson & Adam Quirk). My current area of focus is tv commercial remix. I make daily commercial remixes on Vine and practice Tuvan throat-singing and auctioneer calling in the shower in my spare time.
Feel free to contact me. Thanks for stopping by.
