What Do You Think Of SAM's New 'Mirror' Exhibit?

The Seattle Art Museum unveiled a new installation on its facade over the weekend called 'Mirror.' The permanent video fixture created by artist Doug Aitken, can be described as a "living exterior" which "will always change" and "you'll never see the same image twice." Using monitors that take into consideration factors such as weather, temperature and even traffic, the display will change its footage of Northwestern imagery between 7am and 1am every day. The entire project takes up two, 120-foot-wide LED screens, one on First Avenue and one on Union Street.
