Our requisite shot of French artist Vincent Lamouroux’s Projection, the recent art installation along Sunset in Silver Lake that transformed the Sunset Pacific Motel (AKA the “Bates Motel”) into a shockingly white-washed monument to creativity.
As the artist and the France Los Angeles Exchange put it:
“Just as the Silver Lake neighborhood itself has transformed radically in recent years, and continues to evolve, so too will the artist’s iteration of the motel embody a transformation, surrendering and passage; the white surface of its facade will be a symbolic invitation to project our ideas about both its mythic past and its indeterminate future.”
You can see a ton more images on the (very cool) Projection LA site and read the artist’s full statement…if you’re quick about it.
If you’re in LA, stop by the site before the entire thing’s demolished in the coming weeks.
