Insights 2021: Eric Timothy Carlson and Aaron Anderson (+ Friends)

How have artists and designers continued to effectively come together during the global pandemic? In what promises to be a visually vibrant media-rich experiment in Zoom dynamics, frequent collaborators Eric Timothy Carlson and Aaron Anderson will discuss many of their shared projects, including the visual system for Bon Iver’s recent album i,i, which has been nominated for a Grammy and a 2020 Beazley Design of the Year award. The two designers will also be joined in conversation by several friends with whom they’ve worked over the years.

In addition to his position as creative director for music collective Bon Iver, Eric Timothy Carlson maintains an independent art and design studio, examining ideas of iconography and language often through highly nuanced collage work. He has collaborated with artists such as Peter Burr and Annie Larson and exhibited with institutions such as Printed Matter and Fisher Parrish Gallery.

Aaron Anderson is a filmmaker, artist, animator, musician, and member of the band Beat Detectives. His work exists as poetic iterations of narrative space and movement, and has been presented in a variety of institutions including MoMA PS1, MassMOCA, and the Van Abbe Museum. Both artists graduated from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
