Aaron Treher is an interdisciplinary artist and educator based out of Boulder, Colorado. He received his Master of Fine Arts from the University of Colorado Boulder’s Department of Art and Art History in 2018. Treher’s artwork examines architecture, infrastructure and building methods that serve both people and animal populations simultaneously, focusing on man-made structures that serve as niche habitats for animals such as bats, barn swallows and cliff swallows. Some speculate that barn swallows have built their mud nests alongside people for much of human history, making them a unique audience for his practice. Treher hopes that through construction, documentation and exhibition of these spaces, he can create a better understanding of the overlap of culture and ecology in both rural and urban spaces.
