Earlier this week, while lunching at a steakhouse in Barstow, CA, Los Angeles artist and Station To Station mastermind Doug Aitken said his art project “is kind of a living organism… I like encounters; I like randomness and physicality.”

In a a strong feature in the New York Times today, writer Melena Ryzik does a great job of getting at the heart of what Station To Station is all about. The three week traveling art and music exhibit which ends today at Oakland’s 16th Station with, among other things, performances by No Age and Savages.
