“A Day in the Life” with Local Toronto Artist Aaron Moore

Aaron Moore is a Northern Irish artist currently in his fourth and final year at OCAD university. He’s interested in photography and ways which it can be mixed with other mediums and re-articulated. He’s been living in Toronto for four years now and is part of The Pendulum Project, a grassroots organization dedicated to raising the profile of emerging artists through community engagement.

Aaron is one of five selected students in OCAD University’s new artist-in-residency program, the Jack Weinbaum Family Foundation Global Experience Project, which gives accomplished arts students the opportunity to work with a world renowned artist. The inaugural artist-in-residence of this five year initiative is acclaimed London based artist and filmmaker, Isaac Julien.
