Stop and Glow: Todd VonBastiaans ACE Rapid Transit Art
Water and Light flow throughout our valley. This city exists because of our excess use of these elements. An excess of elements can also cause great damage to this oasis. We are at a pivotal point in our city’s history. The current housing crisis has caused numerous pools that populate those yards to have been left unattended. Many now live as ghosts and rememberances of a lighter time, a time when water and light signified refreshing coolness and icons of leisure. For Stop and Glow I have revisited the pools shapes of Las Vegas as a means of relief. Waiting for a bus in the brutal and painfully hot sun. I hope that the pools of light will serve as a reminder of the prosperity and life our pools once provided and something refreshingly cool for the patrons of CAT.
