Doug Aitken: 99 Cent Dreams
by Heidi Jacobson
Publisher's Description
This lavishly illustrated artist’s book is the largest and most ambitious publication yet produced by the Los Angeles-based video artist and photographer Doug Aitken—an artist known for his groundbreaking publications. Featuring a short text by Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson, Director and Chief Curator of the Aspen Art Museum, it focuses on Aitken’s still images, more than half of which have never been reproduced before. Known primarily for his multi-screen video installations, Aitken has gained international recognition for his immersive explorations of the experience of time and location. His exhibition at the Aspen Art Museum was the first dedicated solely to his photography. From nighttime cityscapes to deserted gas stations, airports and bus depots, Aitken’s dreamlike photographs contain the same spatial and temporal dislocation and narrative suggestion as his installations.
