Doug Aitken: Electric Earth | Author: Philippe Vergne

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 reimagine the nature of what a work of art can be.

Interspersed with hundreds of colour 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.
