Transcool Tokyo

Japan is utterly strange, if we are to follow in the footsteps of Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson in Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation (2003) as visitors to a country for whose culture and language have (nor do they want to have) absolutely no affinity. Yet their acute sense of dislocation and turmoil in which we are caught up simply play out at the fringes[…..]

Doug Aitken at Regen Projects

Installation view: HOUSE, 2010. Courtesy of Regen Projects, Los Angeles. It feels like a thousand years, though I know it’s only been about five minutes.
