Here’s a one last look at LA’s Sunset Pacific Motel aka Bates Motel (a pin on Hollywood filmmaking and the 1960 Alfred Hitchcock Psycho).
Limewashed by French artist Vincent Lamouroux, the environment-friendly, ephemeral public art, entitled Projection, is symbolic of the calcification of the effete structure.
Demolition for mixed use redevelopment starts soon. Until then passers-by down Sunset Boulevard take pictures of the whitewashed The Bates in Silver Lake.
