Accompanying the artist s first full-scale survey exhibition, this generously illustrated book explores Doug Aitken s work across mediums, disciplines, and themes.
From photography to architecture, and from video to spoken word, Doug Aitken has delved into a variety of art forms to create a provocative body of work.
This volume surveys the full scope and depth of Aitken s work: sound pieces, sculpture, architectural experiments, land art and happenings, which embrace a collaborative spirit across disciplines and beyond walls, to re-imagine the nature of what a work of art can be.
Interspersed with hundreds of color illustrations, the book s essays examine the plethora of ideas the artist tackles from environmental decay to the end of linear time and explain how and why Aitken challenges many artistic barriers."
