Doug Aitken: Station to Station

 

Doug Aitken's 23-day journey crossed North America by train presenting a series of cultural interventions and site-specific happenings that took place in ten cities between New York and San Francisco. The train, designed as a moving, kinetic light sculpture, was at the center of it all, housing the constantly changing group of creative individuals and broadcasting experiences to a global audience. Over one hundred unique projects took place during the journey, created by today's leading contributors in contemporary art, music, literature, and culture. This catalogue includes an introduction by Dean Kuipers and interviews with Beck, Bice Curiger, Scott Dadich, Dan Deacon, Olafur Eliasson, Urs Fischer, Liz Glynn, Carsten Höller, Thurston Moore, Giorgio Moroder, Ed Ruscha, Lawrence Weiner, and many more.
