Guaranteed Delivery at the Margulies Collection


The Margulies Collection in Miami had a Doug Aitken sculpture. I had not seen any of his work before, but around the time i saw this, there was a lot of news coverage about his latest work, the video that he projected on to the exterior walls of MoMA NY, called Sleepwalkers. This is a very different medium where he used FedEx boxes to create the Manhattan skyline out of maquettes of buildings that never got built. Next to the work (not pictured) is a diagram that shows the story behind each building proposal in the installaton. Life size pigeons on top of some buildings add whimsy. I hope to see more of his work in the future.
Did anybody see the projections at MoMA? What did you think?
