Aaron Butt’s practice is concerned with unexpected, affective and apophenic responses to found images, objects and text which are then contextualised in psychoanalytic and neuroscientific frameworks. Working across a range of media, affective responses are recorded yet abstracted in order to promote new connections and experiences, both real and imagined.
