American artist Doug Aitken's Station to Station project is a high speed road trip through modern creativity. Over a 23-day period, the project 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 a 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, including Beck, Bice Curiger, Scott Dadich, Dan Deacon, Olafur Eliasson, Urs Fischer, Liz Glynn, Carsten Holler, Thurston Moore, Giorgio Moroder, Ed Ruscha, Lawrence Weiner, and many more.
