Artist's description:

Rhyolite is a ghost town located in Nevada’s Bullfrog Hills about 120 miles northwest of Las Vegas. It emerged as one of several mining camps in 1905. After several gold discoveries in the area, the town quickly became a hot spot for adventurer. The 1906 San Francisco earthquake sounded the death-knell for Rhyolite because it precipitated the financial crash of 1907 and dried up funding for the mines. Rhyolite is claimed to have a secretive area holding both a former nuclear weapon test site and the mysterious Area 51, linked with UFOs by excitable conspiracy theorists.

I lightpainted & photographed Sofie Siegmann's mosaic sofa sculpture (in the background) and Albert Szukalski's artwork (in front) in complete darkness. In order to create this work, I used YIFENG XML-T6 Portable 1600 Lumen CREE LED Tactical Flashlights. Rhyolite ghost town has quirky scenes with lot of symbolism. It almost feels like a scene from Alejandro Jodorowsky's "The Holy Mountain" which gave me the inspiration creating this image.
