Haluk Akakše: Sky is the LimitHaluk Akakše: Sky is the Limit

Published by Creative Time Books.
Edited by Peter Eleey. Introduction by Anne Pasternak. Text by Alex Farquharson. Interview by Jane &Louise Wilson.

In 2006, with the assistance of the New York public art agency Creative Time, the Turkish-born, London-based video artist Haluk Akakše launched his monumental Las Vegas installation, Sky is the Limit, above four blocks of open-air casinos, kiosk vendors and vintage neon icons on the infamous strip, Fremont Street. Utilizing the latest technology to create a "realer than real" experience, Haluk Akakše's work stages a confrontation between artificial and organic life, suggesting both the liberating and alienating power of technology, and evoking an alternate fluid sense of space and time. According to art critic Alex Farquharson, Akakše opens a view into "a world of seemingly endless possibilityůwhere it seems one may become anything simply by believing in its possibility."
