Doug Aitken 'Song 1' Plays 'I Only Have Eyes for You' in Washington DC

An inventive way to adorn a building so that it is always current with social culture is to use a projector just like the Doug Aitken 'Song 1' installation.

The Smithsonian Hirshorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington D.C. will be shining with digital projected lights around its cement walls. This is a full 360-degree project that will use 11 projectors. The building will be displaying over fifteen covers of the song 'I Only Have Eyes for You.'

This is Aitken's way of providing an avant-garde motive towards urban architecture and perhaps opening new doors to public building decor. This display is currently active and will be until May 13, 2012. The brilliance behind a moving picture as a way to decorate a building will allow infrastructure to always remain beautiful regardless of its age.
