DOUG AITKEN: ELECTRIC EARTH. Philippe Vergne. Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, 2016. Published in association with DelMonico Books, Prestel Publishing, New York. 264 pp. with 253 col. ills. 32 x 23 cm. ISBN 9783791355696 In English.
Publisher's description: 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.
