Doug Aitken: Song 1
Doug Aitken’s Song 1 is an astonishing 360-degree, moving-image opus commissioned by the Hirshhorn Museum. Employing eleven high-definition projectors, it illuminates the façade of the museum’s iconic cylindrical building with a seamless blend of imagery and the single song, I Only Have Eyes for You. Designed by the artist, this distinctive book, Doug Aitken: Song 1 reprises the Hirshhorn’s shape, while visually interpreting the work from an art historical and cultural context. Hardcover; 150 pages with 120 color and black and white illustrations. 13" x 8.3".
