The term Acid Modernism implies a radical version of traditional modernism, but the most radical issue about the artist Doug Aitken’s Venice California property may be how ordinary it is.

We believed that would be a wonderful atmosphere to live in,” he says. And after seeking at these images, who could argue with the goal—or the enviable final results?
