Sculptural Cinema


This spring, LA-based fine-art studio Doug Aitken Workshop will wrap the circular façade of Washington DC’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in a 360° LCD screen, transforming the building into a cinematic installation.

Using approximately 11 high-definition projectors, the panorama will envelop the building’s architecture in constantly shifting images and sounds. Visitors will have to walk the entire perimeter of the building to properly view the work as intended by the artist.

The installation runs from March 22 to May 13 2012.
