Item description for Haluk Akakce: Sky is the Limit by Haluk Akakce, Peter Eleey & Louise Wilson...
In 2006, with the assistance of the New York public art agency Creative Time, the Turkish-born, London-based video artist Haluk Akakce launched his monumental Las Vegas installation, Sky is the Limit, above four blocks of open-air casinos, kiosk vendors and vintage neon icons on the infamous strip, Fremont Street. Utilizing the latest technology to create a "realer than real" experience, Haluk Akakce's work stages a confrontation between artificial and organic life, suggesting both the liberating and alienating power of technology, and evoking an alternate fluid sense of space and time. According to art critic Alex Farquharson, Akakce opens a view into "a world of seemingly endless possibility where it seems one may become anything simply by believing in its possibility."
