About the Artwork

Set in the center of the casino space, Gold Carousel is a kinetic work whose front half is embodied with gold-colored mirrors. Shadows of diverse objects pertaining to the casino are reflected onto a horse structure on the upper portion of the carousel. This installation lends warmth to the space of the casino through the culmination of a merry-go-round and shadow play that stimulates childlike innocence in the flashy and superb casino space. It also lends showy, dynamic feelings to the space via its gold-colored mirrors on all of its sides.
