Body Talk - A conversation led by Expansions artist Eames Armstrong the boundaries of the body and our conception of self, particularly in the context of technology & social media.

... Eames Armstrong is an interdisciplinary artist, curator, and founder of Aether Art Projects. She received her BFA from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 2010, where she studied studio art with emphasis on painting, writing, and performance. Armstrong’s practice considers memory and fantasy, with a particular interest in reprocessing materials of domestic spaces, representing the visualization of memory and the struggle to preserve it.

Transformer presents Expansions, featuring artists:
Eames Armstrong, Benjamin Edmiston, Matt Hollis, Victor Koroma, and Megan Mueller. Recognizing these five artists’ diverse talent, Transformer invites them to expand on their small to medium sized 2-D works on paper in our FlatFile program, utilizing the Transformer space to further develop existing themes and directions within their work through larger scale mixed-media installations, paintings, video animation, and sculptural works. In tandem with this exhibition, Transformer launches on-line sales of our FlatFile via our website,, with works by each of the Expansions artists.

Introduced in spring 2007, Transformer's FlatFile consists of works in a variety of two-dimensional mediums including photography, painting, drawing and printmaking approximately 16" x 20" in size and smaller. Featuring works by regionally, nationally and internationally based emerging artists, the program is open to both artists that have exhibited with Transformer in the past and those who are new to Transformer. Expanding our mission to further connect and promote emerging visual artists with audiences and collectors, FlatFile works have been previously presented in art fairs such as ArtDC, No Soul For Sale (NYC), and (e)merge (DC), and offsite exhibitions including the internationally touring ALPTRAUM exhibition.
