“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 has gathered 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 has been curated into a nonnarrative format referencing Aitken’s creation and disruption of narratives through editing and content.
