what happens when a movie gets “remixed”?!
People have been remixing songs for what feels like forever, but film? That's another story. L.A. artist Doug Aitken is taking a stab at it by "remixing" his movie Sleepwalkers into an all-out, multimedia experience. Starring Tilda Swinton and Cat Power, the narrative, which follows five characters throughout their lives in New York, was first projected at the MoMA back in 2007.
For round two, Aitken has teamed up with DFA Records (home to The Rapture and LCD Soundsystem) and transformed the flick into an exclusive grab bag filled with flipbooks, production skills, posters, sketches, and more. Taking cues from art world icons like Andy Warhol and the '60s publication Aspen, the Sleepwalkers Box is a trippy mishmash of print, audio, and film- kind of like the coolest mystery gift ever.
