Jamie Brisick takes a look at the life and art of Doug Aitken, an LA based surfer and internationally known artist, who “blurs the lines between film, video, still photography, architecture, sculpture, and Willy Wonka.” At first glance his art has nothing to do with surfing, but when you dive deeper, it is easy to see how elements of surfing have shaped his life and artwork.
