alone, sometimes, 


Aaron Turner, 2018, 23 minutes 9 seconds, Digital, Dv tape


This film seeks to challenge ways of contributing to social movements through the exploration of light from a first-person perspective, with intentions and thought on the interpretation of explicitly political expectations on aesthetics in art (black art, and the black artist). Through the human eye, abstraction, and removed conceptual choices combined with sound, I attempt to portray

the act of seeing/making and the reflection of the possibility of my internal thoughts during the process.

Audio for this film comes from Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Beyond Vietnam” speech April 4th, 1967
Riverside Church in New York. 


Scenes from this film were shot in Annandale-on-Hudson, NY,
Christiansburg, VA, San Antonio, Texas, and Montclair, NJ.
