Station To Station (12A)

In 2013, artist Doug Aitken transformed a train into a “kinetic light sculpture” and travelled 4,000 miles across North America with a revolving community of artists and musicians who collaborate on recordings, artworks, films, and 10 "happenings" across the country. The result is 62 one minute films, providing an engaging snapshot of the project, blending footage of “happenings” with on-board conversations and performances.
