Doug Aitken – Altered Earth

The surreal, cratered salt mines and desolate marshlands of the Camargue region of Southern France are hauntingly navigated in this exclusive excerpt from ALTERED EARTH: Arles, City of Moving Images, a new multimedia production from artist Doug Aitken. The culmination of three years’ work, ALTERED EARTH explores the ever-evolving geography and ecosystem of the Camargue, a boundless wilderness between the tributaries of the Rhone south of Arles. “It’s so remote, a natural place that does not seem to change. But then you start to notice that everything is in flux,” explains Aitken.
