A new exhibit at MOCA features Doug Aitken's impressive work.
It includes seven large-scale video installations dating to 1997
as well as a recent live sound piece whose haunting melody permeates the space.
The exhibition is particularly significant because Aitken’s multimedia and site-specific installations, in innovative architectural settings around the world,
defy institutionalization nearly as much as he defies categorization.
Aitken is a landscape artist of sorts whose work explores the abstract,
ephemeral terrain of the mind and our fragmented, collective digital consciousness.
Motion, the fast flow of information and the passage of time are themes.
