Doug Aitken “New Era”
303 Gallery
555 West 21st Street
OPENS: April 13

Aitken presents a timely interrogation of technology’s impact on humanity with a new immersive installation integrating sound, image, space. Situated in a hexagonal space built into the gallery, the artist projects his film about cellphone inventor Martin Cooper projected onto three mirrored walls, reflecting the piece’s hypnotic imagery in a continuous, disorienting loop. A second work, displayed in an empty space, uses pulsating neon lights that spell out the piece’s title, Jungle, in a seemingly limitless number of variations.
