Margaritaville Casino, Las Vegas, NV
Kinetic morphing art installation created for the first Margaritaville casino on the Las Vegas Strip. Each of the three works is approximately 28” x 52” and is created as a matrix of eight smaller art panels. The front face of each column is a kinetic image that continually morphs from one image of classic Jimmy Buffet iconography to another.
No moving parts are used. Special panels of liquid crystal fluid between glass sheets cause the change as a predetermined electrical signal twists the molecules in the fluid. The light is provided by special LED panels. The side and back panels on each column are photographs of the front panels and do not change.
