99 Cent Dreams.
Photographs by Doug Aitken. Text by Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson.
Aspen Art Museum, Aspen, 2008. 224 pp., 216 illustrations, 12x10¼".
This lavishly illustrated artist’s book is the largest
and most ambitious publication yet produced by
the Los Angeles-based video artist and photographer
Doug Aitken—an artist known for his
groundbreaking publications. Featuring a short
text by Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson, Director and
Chief Curator of the Aspen Art Museum, it focuses
on Aitken’s still images, more than half of
which have never been reproduced before.
Known primarily for his multi-screen video
installations, Aitken has gained international
recognition for his immersive explorations of the
experience of time and location. His exhibition at
the Aspen Art Museum was the first dedicated
solely to his photography. From nighttime
cityscapes to deserted gas stations, airports and
bus depots, Aitken’s dreamlike photographs contain
the same spatial and temporal dislocation
and narrative suggestion as his installations.
