Using the landscape around him as both subject and medium, Doug Aitken creates works that illuminate how we experience the world. Though he works in an array of media, including photography, video, sound, and sculpture, he is best known for his installations that intervene on public spaces. For Sleepwalkers (2007), Aitken made a short film starring actors Donald Sutherland and Tilda Swinton, among others, which he projected in separate frames onto the Museum of Modern Art and adjacent buildings. Requiring eight projectors, the film plays with the conventions of narrative, mirroring the frenetic sights and sounds of the city.
