Haluk Akakçe: Sky is the Limit

Front Cover
Creative Time, 2007 - Art - 56 pages
In 2006, with the assistance of the New York public art agency Creative Time, the Turkish-born, London-based video artist Haluk Akakçe 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 Akakçe'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, Akakçe opens a view into "a world of seemingly endless possibility...where it seems one may become anything simply by believing in its possibility."
