Above is a video clip from her current installation at the north entrance of the Aria in Las Vegas. Over 200 sayings are programmed into the LED display art such as; “It’s important to stay clean on all levels.” “Overeating should be criminal.” “If you live simply, there is nothing to worry about.” “It’s not good to operate on credit.”
According to the Las Vegas Sun, “Holzer was tapped by Michele Quinn, whom MGM Mirage tasked with overseeing its ambitious public art effort. Quinn describes herself as “kind of a groupie” of Holzer’s, and says she thought such an LED installation could be the best use of such an awkward, dark space as this lower-level valet area. People would be waiting around anyway, so why not give them something to look at — and think about — as they departed?”
Thanks to NotCot for the heads up on this!
