Central to Doug Aitken's "100 YRS" exhibition is a new "Sonic Fountain," in which water drips from 5 rods suspended from the ceiling, falling into a concrete crater dug out of the gallery floor. The flow of water itself is controlled so as to create specific rhythmic patterns that will morph, collapse and overlap in shifting combinations of speed and volume, lending the physical phenomenon the va...

I don’t always write statements about my work, but when I do, I prefer to start sentences with “As an artist.” As an artist, it is thrilling to go through customs and be asked what I do. Nothing else charges me with such agency then when the customs official asks me directly "what is your occupation?" I do not get insecure or try to prove myself by giving them a rundown of my CV. I just look at th...
