Bond

Synth is an LED art installation incorporated into the architecture of Bond, created by Leo Villareal, a pioneer in the use of LEDs and computer-driven imagery, known for his light sculptures and architectural, site-specific works. Synth consists of sculptural monitors and arrayed LED bulbs that are controlled by custom-made software. The effect is a semi-abstract display of light and video that references pop culture, the surrounding Las Vegas environment, the origins of life, astronomy, Impressionism, and Color Field painting.
