Doug Aitken is a very talented artist who likes to use all sorts of media in representing his vision. He offers a mix of photography, installation and everything between.

I particularly enjoy his photo collection of barnyard animals making themselves comfortable in the master bedroom. The combination of the majestic buffalo among the everyday furniture of the living room is an odd sight to see. Form more of this wonderful weirdness, check out Aitken's website.

Implications - Doug Aitken's 'Migration' places wild animals in vacant modern roadside hotels. Personally I think that the photos are eerie but that they work really well as a commentary on urbanization. Doug Aitken is a phenomenal photographer.
