Things We Like: Station to Station


Masterminded by video artist and multi-tasker Doug Aitken, Station to Station puts art, music, food, and performance on a train and shares it with the world via happenings at station stops across the country. With a mix of international icons and local treasures appearing at various points along the way, you never know quite what you’re going to get from, uh, station to station. Luckily there’s a comprehensive website that keeps you informed while chronicling the action for those of us who cannot attend. Actually, though, you could say that the website itself is a participant as it grows and morphs and changes each day with more content than one can rightfully digest in one viewing.

Basically, it’s like the circus coming to town. But a lot more fun and a little less scary.
