A, B, C, D, E... In this new, experimental volume of the work of artist Doug Aitken, the alphabet serves as an underlying organizational structure, a map which readers can turn to as a guide for moving through the book's images and texts. Combining a selection of new and older artwork alongside diverse texts, this book juxtaposes seemingly unrelated elements, creating shifting relationships and patterns that emerge only with time. On the visual side, A-Z (Fractals) offers a selection of past work, new photography, images from recent video pieces - such as Interiors, New Ocean and New Skin -and a new series of collages. On the verbal side are an essay by noted architcture and design scholar Michael Speaks, excerpts from a conversation between Aitken and curator Russel Ferguson, a short story by artist Philippe Parreno, a series of short entries written by Aitken, and excerpts from a conversation between Aitken and Dan Kish, a blind man working at the Braille Institute in Los Angeles on echo location. Published in conjunction with The Fabric Workshop and Kunsthalle Zurich. Exhibition Schedule: The Fabric Workshop and Museum, Philadelphia September 20, 2002 - January 11, 2003 · Kunsthalle Zürich June 15 - August 10, 2003
