when walking inside swiss artistist urs fischer‘s nomadic art tent, viewers are immediately immersed in a glittering dreamscape. a vaporous, cloud-like smoke hazily hangs in the air, saturating the intimate space in a celestial aura. a large, plush white bed set in the middle of the structure beckons participants to lie, nap, and daydream in the misty ambiance. ceiling-high mirrors canvas the walls, reflecting glistening fragments from a rotating disco ball above. the hypnotizing, mystical atmosphere feels like a frosted kaleidoscope, with shadows and luminous refractions from both people moving inside, as well as interior details, creating mesmerizing visuals. fischer’s traveling art sculpture is part of doug aitken‘s ‘station to station— a collaborative cultural project currently journeying the united states by train, making creative ‘pit-stops’ in various cities along the way. the structure plays host to musical performances, events, and acted as a serene hideaway for idle visitors of the creative happening.
