Aaron D. Estrada explores the engineering of identity and socioeconomics in alter-like installations, sculptures and performances. Aaron’s works investigates cultural signifiers such as territory symbols, tags, altars, murals, and other esoteric residue. The work examines how/why disenfranchised demographics are subject to systemic racism and colonial turmoil. He seeks to deconstruct icons and symbols associated to indigenous and colonial cultures by questioning the body, landscapes subjugations, and knowledge of self through archetypes/stereotypes. The intent is to honor and give new life to these signifiers as an entryway into conversations revolving around identity.
