This Old LA Motel Is Actually a Work of Art

MyBelonging takes us inside ProjectionLA, an installation by French artist Vincent Lamouroux.

So sublime - you have to see it to believe it.

From its urban centers to the ethnic enclaves that are scattered throughout, Los Angeles has always been an exhibitionist city in my eyes. ProjectionLA by French artist, Vincent Lamouroux, is a beautiful testament to that notion. The Sunset Pacific Motel (otherwise known as 'The Bates Motel') received an eco-friendly, lime wash facelift transforming the derelict hotel into its current state.

Words simply cannot commensurate the stark visual experience against the vibrant backdrop of clear blue skies and palm trees. Further evidence that there is endless beauty in austerity.

PS. Thinking of making some of these pictures into actual prints - any takers? Let me know in the comments!
