Continuing the Site Specific project, Olivo Barbieri looks at Las Vegas and makes a mock-up of it in rhe remote desert. He abstains from tourist clichés by accompanying the images with muffled sounds of explosions, and thus underscores the paradox of this entertainment capital, imperturbable in the face of the energy crisis and terrorist attacks.
