On view on Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles, from 8–17 February 2019, this new installation meditates on the rapid changing face of technology framed within a relic of our modern past. The atmosphere of a desolate storefront presents a 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. This new era is increasingly de-material, where human connection is evaporating and quickly being replaced by digital life.
Don’t Forget to Breathe is a new installation by Doug Aitken Workshop in collaboration with Regen Projects, Galerie Eva Presenhuber and generously supported by RYOT. Additional thanks to 303 Gallery and Victoria Miro. It is located at 6775 Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90038 and on view from February 8–17 2019 and will be open daily 12–8pm.
