Joseph Ayers takes many different forms into his visual art: from video installation to painting, sculpture to sound, drawing to performance.
Landscape, nature and human cognition are recurring themes in his work. He explores the ways in which culturally formed expectations affect perceptions. Through various combinations of media, his work questions the disparities and similarities between his subjects. Juxtaposing natural and fabricated elements causes a shift in perception, subtly unseating the psychological center of the viewer.
