The first book entirely dedicated to the sculptures of multimedia artist Doug Aitken, this volume offers an overview of his 3D works and includes a specially commissioned text by acclaimed novelist Steve Erickson. Designed in the artist's studio, the publication is organized as a graphic novel more than an inventory, while offering complete information on the pieces in the index. Using words and images, technology and human perception to trigger personal reactions from the readers, the works are combined here in a new form, assembled as they are in printed form as a "Gesamt-exhibition," one that is unique to the medium of the book.
Published with Regen Projects, Los Angeles; Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Zurich; Victoria Miro, London; and 303 Gallery, New York.
These copies are signed by author Steve Erickson.
