aAron Munson is a Canadian filmmaker, cinematographer and multimedia artist. His work has taken him from his personal studio to war zones, high-Arctic weather stations, reindeer nomad camps in Siberia, and the Arabian Desert. His art projects focus on extreme human experiences, both far from and close to home. They utilize film, video, photography, and sound to create visual explorations relating to mental illness, memory, and the nature of consciousness. His major 2018 work, Isachsen, which was shown at dc3ArtsProjects in Edmonton, stems from a daring expedition he undertook to a dilapidated weather station in Nunavut in order to explore the ties between isolation, the harshness of the far North, and depression.
