Where Doug Aitken Works

The art installation Song 1 that is currently lighting up the Hirshhorn each night was created by California artist Doug Aitken. The Wall Street Journal took a tour of his workspace where all the magic happens. Usually artists create places to work that are an escape from the world, but not Aitken. "I don't really care about interruptions. I accept technology and I don't turn things off. I've found a peace with fragmentation and a harmony with switching gears quickly to other things." [Hirshhorn; WSJ]
