Black Alchemy Volume 3

Aaron Turner’s work looks at the monolithic historical narrative within art history, and its recognition bias of notable Black artists until later in their careers or upon their death. Through the canon of Afrofuturism, digital culture, and artificial intelligence, he incorporated the use of virtual reality into the series, Black Alchemy, to create immersive speculative spaces that the viewer can actively be immersed in beyond the observational 2-D experience.
