Aspen Hochhalter

Hochhalter’s work explores the crossover between digital technology and historic photographic processes. The 92/20 Self-Portrait Series, created in 20-days during the summer of 2011, addresses the construction and deconstruction of feminine identity. Her Reclamation of Silver Series examines the creation and manipulation of imagery and texture.

During her residency, Hochhalter will expand her i must make my bones series. This collaborative project with modern dancers and choreographers from the Triptych Collective—a group of local musicians, dancers and visual artists--will result in a short choreographed work that will be created as a stop motion animation using unconventional photographic techniques and materials. She will also work with Studio 345, a free, after-school youth development program that uses digital photography and digital multimedia arts to educate and inspire students.

Aspen is an Assistant Professor at UNC Charlotte where she teaches Photography in the Department of Art and Art History. A native of Colorado, she received her BFA from Creighton University in Omaha, NE, and MFA from East Carolina University in Greenville, NC.
