Description:
Doug Aitken is a young Californian video and installation artist who has risen to international prominence with works such as his multi-screen video environment 'electric earth'. Aitken's subjects explore the deserted spaces of Bollywood film sets in India; Jonestown, Guyana, the site of the notorious mass suicide of religious cultists; and a remote diamond-mining region of Namibia, closed to outsiders since 1908. His environments are vivid, elusive and dreamlike. This monograph explores the artist and his work.
It features a discussion of Aitken's working methods by Amanda Sharp; an examination of Aitken's art within the context of contemporary philosophy and the work of other artists who have explored expanded notions of time and space; a study by Jorg Heiser of Aitken's 'i am in you', a five-screen work centring on the imaginative experiences of a young girl; 'Artist's Choice', for which the artist has selected a short story, 'Funes the Memorious', by Jorge Luis Borges, whose description of altered realities through the distortions of mirrors and memory echoes the artist's own interests; and 'Artist's Writings' - Doug Aitken's writings include his retelling of an unusual story he once heard from strangers he met in the desert and which served as the basis for a subsequent work.
