Doug Aitken’s Underwater Pavilions (#art)

Doug Aitken is an American contemporary artist who defies easy categorization. He works in a wide variety of media from architecture to video. In December 2016, in partnership with environmental nonprofit Parley for the Oceans and MOCA LA, he created an installation off the Catalina Coast called Underwater Pavilions. Unfortunately, the installation is no longer in place but keep on the lookout for it to appear in another ocean sometime in the future.
