Artist Statement: 

Patterns of Aggression explores aggression as it relates to survival. The images depict the delicate relationship of something becoming and the qualities inherent in this change. 

Cole Caswell’s Patterns of Aggression project questions and explores the entanglement of technology, aggression, and patterning as a consideration in understanding contemporary aspects of survival. Caswell investigates landscape, place, environment, and geography, through a strata of observation, technology, subjectivity, and his surroundings. He uses traditional, historic and digital photographic media—including inkjet prints and tintypes as well as GPS, environmental data sets, augmented sampling procedures, clothing design, and classification—to investigate our present state.
