'Life is made of surprises...100 years ago this reality was totally out of the question...' Doug Aitken visits visionary architect Paolo Soleri in the desert outside Phoenix, Arizona at the site of the 'eco-city' Arcosanti which he built in the 1970s.



Artist Doug Aitken presents a series of filmed conversations with well-known cultural figures, exploring the essence of their creative process.

The film is part of Aitken’s artwork The Source, an installation at Tate Liverpool (15 September 2012 – 13 January 2013).
