californian artist doug aitken has maintained his eclectic repertoire with his exhibition at art basel 2012. the pieces are an exposition of aitken’s interest in mixed-media artwork, focusing heavily on illuminated typographical elements combined with light and photography. other pieces employed hand-carved foam, epoxy and hand silk-screened acrylic, shown inside and on the exterior walls of a temporary, multi-roomed pavilion installed on the exhibition floor.
