Doug Aitken: Electric Earth at MOCA Geffen

Hit up my IG to see an immense archive of art shows I’ve visited!

Doug Aitken at MOCA Geffen was an incredible and dynamic exhibit. I believe Aitken to be a true Renaissance. His talents are full spectrum. From cinema to installation to sculpture, everything was so aesthetically pleasing to the eyes. His work really touches upon your senses.

Lorna Mills

Lorna Mills takes popular culture and creates these magnificent and odd GIF animations.  Her digital media art is looping visual candy that mashes up viral image bytes that I can relate to.

“Lorna uses different ways to create her animated GIFs, a well known one is from the huge research she makes on the Internet about viral videos, images and even found GIFs, then she manipulates it to create her animated collages to show to the viewer her own story, her own world.” – Triangulation Blog

See it for yourself!

So Mike D. of the Beastie Boy’s has curated a show titled Transmissions, an audio video affair.  Here Ben Jones creates a 3-Dimensional projected room which parallels a driving video game.  It looks fantastic and I will be attending the MOCA in Los Angeles in early May to see it for myself.
