“I really like the idea of banality and repetition being used to generate the image,
which are simple and unobstructed and not captivated by composition.”
In conjunction with Doug Aitken: Electric Earth, the Modern’s EDU department is gathering image, text, video, sound and interactive content to compile into a multimedia PDF hinging on the conceptualization of the American Frontier and its transience into the 21st century.
Selected work will be curated into a nonnarrative format referencing Aitken’s creation and disruption of narratives through editing and content.
Contributors are encouraged to submit heterogeneous interpretations of emigration, land use, entertainment industry aesthetics, post-appropriation, mass media, the Western, autonomous automobiles, cowgirls, pedestrianism, decadence, hypertext fiction, heroines, two-day weekends, collage culture, psychogeography, experimental architecture, flâneurerie, delivery systems, experience economy, Los Angeles, déjà vu and any other accents.
