Photo Essay: Las Vegas Street Art
Las Vegas never really held an appeal for me because I have no desire to gamble. I had no idea the city is full of art and artists! I spent three nights there and didn’t gamble until the midnight hour, just 12 hours before departure.
I lost 90% of what I gambled.
I sat down in front of a “Mayan” machine and put in $1. I got 10 cents back. It spun some wheels. I really have no idea what happened. Which is why I don’t gamble.
I had fun watching some of my travel companions gamble seriously. Blackjack was a popular game and probably the only one I would ever consider. I’ve forgotten how to play poker.
Now that I’ve been, I can see how it would be fun to prepare mentally for weeks and give yourself a budget for gambling. I used to really enjoy playing cards. I guess with access to computers all the time and the growing demand to get more work accomplished, I have let the art of playing cards go.
As I’m writing this, I remember having a Mahjong group and we’d play at least once and month. I think that was more than 10 years ago. I digress…
I fell in love with the Las Vegas art scene. From street art to high dollar installations.
I visited the 18b Arts District in downtown Las Vegas, which is helping to revitalize the neighborhood.
The James Turrell’s light installation at Louis Vuitton was otherworldly. Call the store to make an appointment to see it. Perfect for a hot afternoon.
I stopped to take both digital and film photos of street art in the area. I was overwhelmed in the best way because there seemed to be an endless amount. Every piece held a colorful story. I could have spent hours documenting it.
When you find yourself in Las Vegas, don’t forget, there’s art everywhere!
Have you been to Las Vegas? Did you explore the art world? Do you have a favorite installation?
Also, if you know where I can play Mahjong in Vegas, let me know!
New 3D Figurative Collages Encased in Multiple Layers of Glass by Dustin Yellin
The resulting forms resemble dancers striking various poses: their multi-dimensional bodies encapsulated in suspended animation. A grand total of 15 of these “window sandwiches,” each weighing in at 3,000 pounds each,were installed in the atrium of the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center.

Steampunk Metal Sculptures Made From Recycled Materials
A Drought in Mexico Uncovers a 400-Year-Old Colonial Church in the Middle of a Reservoir
The building, which is known as the Temple of Santiago as well as the Temple of Quechula, is roofless, over 60 meters in length, and has walls as high as 10 meters.
The church was originally submerged after a dam was built, which flooded the surrounding area and formed the reservoir. However, during times of extreme drought, the former place of worship has become visible, with fishermen even taking interested passengers on their boats to getting a closer glimpse of the ancient relics.
The church first became briefly visible in 1966, while in 2002, the water level was so low that locals could even walk inside the church.
“The people celebrated. They came to eat, to hang out, to do business. I sold them fried fish. They did processions around the church,” local fisherman Leonel Mendoza told AP.
The church is connected with the famous colonial-era figure of Friar Bartolome de las Casas, who came to Mexico in the 16th century, along with a group of monks who built the church.

Surreal Scenes Created Without Photoshop by Jee Young Lee
For his series of experimental #photography titled Impermanent Sculptures, photographer #Vitor Schietti worked with fireworks and long-exposure photography to illuminate the branches and stems of trees in his native Brazil. The photos are a mixture of in-camera light painting, and a bit of post-processing that can combine up to 12 shots into a final image. He shares with us about the project:
The series is the result of several years of research on long exposure photography, and the usage of ND filters was vital to find a perfect balance between the fading twilight and the brightness of the fireworks. Only a few attempts were allowed per day, since the time frame during which this balance is possible is very narrow (30 to 50 minutes). The Brazilian central plateau, in a kind of savanna called “Cerrado” was the scenery for most of these experimentations. The margins of the lake Paranoa, the streets and some iconic monuments from Brasilia were also locations for some of the light paintings. It’s important to say the series is an ongoing process, and more will follow in the coming year or so.
A Futuristic Villa By J. Mayer H. Architects
Designed by Germany-based J. Mayer H. Architects, ‘Dupli Casa’ is a modern villa near Ludwigsburg that features sleek sculptural and futuristic elements. The geometry of the structure is based on the blueprint of the house formerly located on the site, originally built in 1984. According to the architects, the villa was designed to blend the inner and outer views of the surrounding landscape offered by the building.

http://www.headoverheels.tv “Of the animated shorts, [Head Over Heels is] the cleverest.” -Stephen Holden, The New York Times “The attention to detail is staggering, particularly for a stop-motion animated movie… There may be an impressive crop of animated shorts this year, but Head Over Heels is the most fully realized of the whole bunch. Flawless.” -William Bibbiani, CraveOnline.com “This beautifully animated film is also a wonderfully unique story… Both whimsical and deeply felt… Simply extraordinary.” -Richard Propes, theindependentcritic.com “The true charmer of the screening… The understated nature of the central couple’s struggle calls for repeat viewing.” -Ben Mitchell, skwigly.co.uk

Finnish sculptor and Marimekko textile company designer, Miina Äkkijyrkkä (aka Liina Lång) created this wonderful series of giant cow sculptures made from recycled automobile parts starting in 2000. Known throughout Finland for being a protector of the native Eastern Finncattle dairy breed, Äkkijyrkkä was inspired by her own cows to create these towering metal bovines.
