AJ Strout is a video artist, producer, feminist, VJ, and entangled machine body from Los Angeles. Formally, AJ’s work is an experimentation with the spaces between established conventions. By working across mediums in video, poetry, graphic design, and live performance, AJ challenges the categorical boundaries between art, entertainment, technology, and affect.
Conceptually, AJ’s work investigates transformation and eroticism in an attempt to challenge social propriety and expectations. They often use digital documentation of their body as a creative tool with which to address and disrupt areas of the social imaginary where a departure from mainstream culture is usually absent, considered abhorrent, or abused. AJ’s body is a site of resistance to social control–a living document that confronts mores and defies conformity.
