FRAME captures the installation by Doug Aitken, 3 modern figures (don’t forget to breathe). Three human figures, rendered only in form, crystallized in translucent glass are illuminated by a series of LED, programmed to enact a choreography of lights and sounds in order to create a feeling of connection and alienation of the three. The soundscape stems from the abstraction of human voices. This installation, realised in 2019, has visualised the intuition of the ”possibility that a chapter of capitalism has completed its life cycle and we are entering the next era where the screen world mirrors the physical one.”There is no need to say how much this work mirrors current times, less then one year after.
