Centring on video, sculpture, and installation, Aasgaard is interested in world building and storytelling. Her work analyses our social landscape, raising global issues such as ecological corruption and digital saturation with a cavalier, satirical energy. Aasgaard often works collaboratively. She is currently working in an artist duo with Zayne Armstrong.
