Site Specific - Las Vegas
Year:  2005
Running Time:  13 minutes
Country:  Italy/Canada
Genre:  Short
Director:  Olivo Barbieri

Description:
  In site specific_, his ongoing series of films and large-scale stills, Italian artist Olivo Barbieri creates unusual aerial portrayals of international cities. Filming from a helicopter with a tilt-shift lens camera, Barbieri produces selectively focused images that make Las Vegas's swanky casinos, Rome's ancient monuments, Los Angeles's buzzing metropolis, and Shanghai's contemporary skyscrapers look eerily like miniature models.

By blurring imperfections and distorting the scale of buildings and people, Barbieri redefines our customary ground-level perspective of these cities. Although they appear uncannily artificial, these images are actual depictions of spectacular urban landscapes.
