The most comprehensive book to date on the innovative multimedia artist Doug Aitken. Defying definitions of genre, Doug Aitken has explored every medium, from architecture and film to installations and interventions. While Aitken's work varies in both theme and context, his installations share a common thread in their ability to use technology to evoke meaningful personal reactions from the viewer, encourage audience interaction, and inspire communal gatherings. His films often explore themes of displacement and temporality, and through his keen awareness of motion, sound, and color he creates dreamlike landscapes and the futurist aesthetic for which he has become known. This beautifully designed book features visual essays by the artist and surveys his work in all mediums. The monograph is organized thematically into the four most prevalent ideas connected with his work, inspires thought, and will leave readers examining their own relationship to the world around them.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The book....weaves together various visual essays by the artist and surveys of his work." -S Style

"None of the images are identified with captions, making flipping through the book a peculiar experience. The reader is left to interpret and synthesize the works for herself. This immersive format is a fitting presentation for Aitken's work..." -ArtInfo
