Aaron Henderson

Rehearsals is a video series by Aaron Henderson that documents real people doing everyday actions that structure their lives.  Rope Bridge was shot in Fujisawa, Japan and documents the Fujisawa Fire Department practicing a rope bridge rescue, something they practice daily.  While watching these, I’m reminded of Andy Warhol’s art as life films.  What is similar in both of these is that I can feel the intent and energy of the gaze of the artist transforming the camera lens for the audience.
