Performed by Aaron Axelrod
In Melting Rainbows Axelrod uses his face and various body parts to press up against a transparent plexiglass surface in order to create psychedelic drips and effects that are then live projected onto a theater screen.
Influenced heavily by childrens’ fairy tales, psychedelia, and the occult; Axelrod is known for his unique use of the spectacle & aesthetic choices; inspired by Dr. Seuss, Walt Disney, donuts, and Astrophysics. A practitioner of vast disciplines including painting, installation, performance, sculpture and video art, Axelrod’s work has been displayed in galleries, museums and public spaces in cities across the country. Collaborations have included projects for Walt Disney, Swarovski, KCRW, The Tonight Show w/ Jay Leno, Frank Lloyd Wright, TOMS, Myspace, PTTOW!, Coachella, Skee.TV, Vans, and the LA Sheriffs Dept. to name a few.
