Where does the creative idea start?
What is the journey to the finished creation?
These are the questions world renowned artist Doug Aitken explores in an ongoing series of conversations with groundbreaking pioneers from different disciplines who are shaping modern culture. This astonishing, immersive multiplatformed, generative documentary is presented as a rhythmic six channel projection inside a two-thousand-square-foot pavilion designed in collaboration with architect, David Adjaye. The Source (evolving) will also take the form of a living archive website, and fragments of the films will be screened in various Festival theatres.—This is SO COOL!
A pavilion designed by Adjaye and Aitken was unveiled at the Liverpool Biennial. The circular, bitumen-coated structure has been erected outside Tate Liverpool to house The Source. The films are projected on six screens within the pavilion during gallery opening hours and projected outwards from the structure after dark. They are conversations between Aitken and 18 of the “world’s most established creative individuals” including Jacques Herzog, singer Beck, actress Tilda Swinton, musician and artist Devendra Banhart – and Adjaye himself.
