Seven Magic Mountains


Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone has created this installation ‘Seven Magic Mountains’ set in the desert outside of Las Vegas, Nevada, featuring seven thirty to thirty-five-foot high dayglow totems comprised of painted, locally-sourced boulders.

Visible across the desert landscape along Interstate 15, the location is physically and symbolically mid-way between the natural and the artificial: the natural is expressed by the mountain ranges, desert, and Jean Dry Lake backdrop, and the artificial is is the highway and the constant flow of traffic between Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
