The artist

Patrick Arès-Pilon is a photographer, filmmaker, performance and installation artists whose work has been shown internationally. He is one of the only people in the world to master and maintain the view-master medium. Nostalgia and history drive his art. The art he makes and the way he communicates are truly authentic as he lives in the moment consciously taking in sensory experiences by not owning a cell phone or communicating by email (no social media either). You can check out Patrick's studio on Saturdays as he opens it to the public interested in viewing original three-dimensional photographs in vintage view-masters. You can also visit Patrick at the Art Gallery of Alberta where is one of the AGA'S bilingual educators.
