Doug Aitkens

Aitken’s body of work ranges from photography, sculpture, and architectural interventions to films, sound, single and multichannel video works, and installations. He has described his work as "reflecting a world that is harmonious, mysterious, mesmerizing, passionate, and sometimes rough and violent." His work has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions around the world, in such institutions as the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Museum of Modern Art and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.

Sonic Pavilion
(600ft. At the bottom of the hole hangs a very sensitive microphone that feeds to a number of speakers back at the surface of the earth. The sound heard inside the pavilion is an amplified live fed of the moving interior of the earth.
