Altered Earth
Doug Aitken

“Altered Earth” is a twelve channel audio-video-installation, who brings the interaction of the technique of storytelling and layers of sound to perfection. The installation was on view at Grand Halle at Parc des Ateliers in Arles, France, from 20.10.–02.12.2012.

Tweaklab planned and implement the screening of the exhibition. Through a specially developed construction the screens appeared to be floating in the room where they displayed images that mirror the atmospherical ambiance of the Camargue – not strictly documentary but not in a fictional way either.

The screening during opening night was accompanied by the experimental live music by Terry Riley. That night he and his instruments were part of the installation as they were embedded between the screens. Tweaklab filmed this performance with several cameras and post-produced the documentary at the premises in Basel.
