Doug Aitken: Altered Earth
"Created by the artist Doug Aitken, the ALTERED EARTH App takes the viewer on a surreal and hallucinogenic journey. ALTERED EARTH was created entirely in one region, the desolate Camargue area in Southern France. ALTERED EARTH creates a distinctly modern exploration of landscape and the space between man, nature, and technology. The Camargue’s mysterious quality is the setting for ALTERED EARTH : a naturally sculpted land emitting a rough beauty and unique individuality. This is a setting where German bunkers are being re-claimed by migratory birds and African winds spread the Mediterranean Sea over shallow lagoons revealing salt mines that appear like crystal landscapes from another world."
