As of July 12th, LACMA, in collaboration with the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, will be opening a new presentation by John Gerrard entitled, Solar Reserve (Tonopah, Nevada) 2014. This installation is a large scale digital simulation of a solar thermal power plant in Nevada. Not only is this piece a fascinating look at systems of energy, but the visual created by 10,000 mirrors pointed toward a tower in the desert is breathtaking.
Solar Reserve will be open from July 12th to September 3rd. For more information please visit www.lacma.org.
