stn-to-stn: Station to Station is a very strange bird. In one sense it’s just a huge, rolling celebration of woolly local scenes, raw and pure in the most nondigital way possible. (New York magazine called it “Coachella on wheels.”) The range of artists Aitken plans to hook up with along the way is almost comically diverse. A flamenco dancer is scheduled to perform in California; the artist Olafur Eliasson wants to make a “drawing machine” that will autocreate an artwork as it traverses the country. Aitken is angling to get dance music pioneer Giorgio Moroder to hop on board, gathering samples and music to produce “an extended mix that goes across the country.” Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto is donating a sort of ceremonial yurt that Aitken will … well, do something with. The live components are part of the point he’s making: In a world where you can call up culture on demand, live shows have become the one non-copyable, non-streamable, totally intimate experience.  via Wired.com GIFs across America… …And strange birds…
