Learning from Las Vegas, 1972Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown and Steven IzenourLearning from Las Vegas marked the historical origin of postmodern architecture. The book created a controversy in 1972 by calling for architects to be more receptive to the vernacular, the tastes and values of "common" people, and less immodest in their (Modernist) erections of "heroic," self-aggrandizing monuments.

"A roadway could become a city. A building

could become a sign. In no place at all,

someplace could be created. That is Las Vegas' genius.“

from Learning from Las Vegas

Gropius, Bauhaus, 1925-6, an icon of modern architecture

slide28 more information about Salcedo’s process and intentions San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

“The way that an artwork brings materials together is incredibly powerful. Sculpture is its materiality. I work with materials that are already charged with significance, with meaning they have acquired in the practice of everyday life…then, I work to the point where it becomes something else, where metamorphosis is reached.”

Image from the CECUT Project, Tijuana, Mexico, 2001 by Krzysztof Wodiczko, Adam Whiton, Sung Ho Kim. "The purpose was to use progressive technology to give voice and visibility to the women who work in the "maquiladora" industry in Tijuana. We designed a headset that integrated a camera and a microphone allowing the wearer to move while keeping the transmitted image in focus. The headset was connected to two projectors and loudspeakers that transmitted the testimonies live. The women's testimonies focused on a variety of issues including work related abuse, sexual abuse, family disintegration, alcoholism, and domestic violence. These problems were shared live by the participants, in a public plaza on two consecutive nights, for an audience of more than 1,500. projections on the 60-foot diameter facade of the Omnimax Theater at the Centro Cultural Tijuana(CECUT)
