Art e-Facts 54

Doug Aitken’s complex multi media installations address the elaborate inter-relationships between man, media, industry and landscape and the nature and perception of time. The viewer’s experience of his installations is as much a process of discovery as the making of the pieces was for the artist. The narratives reveal themselves in intricate spirals in which the viewer is forced to actively engage, both physically by passing through the exhibition space to see the various projections and mentally as the multiple images prevent a single interpretation.
