Nevada's cameo as a Manhattan public art project closes this weekend. John Gerrard’s “Solar Reserve” at Lincoln Center uses Nevada's Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project in Tonopah as the source of computer-generated images. The desert became a video game-like virtual world on a 28-by-24-foot LED with shifting images of landscape and solar tower in a waltz with moon, stars and the sun. Gerrard told the Wall Street Journal that the installation is an "illusory desert landscape" into the middle of Manhattan. "I want to cut a hole into this scene and put a world in...an alternate universe."
"Solar Reserve" closes December 1.
