The greatest American mirage, Las Vegas is evoked by Fortner Anderson (recorded voice), through the words of his poem, Vegas. He revisits the dry hills and desert nearby, the chimeric streets, the trompe-l’œil architecture. He spins an internal tale involving melancholic feelings and fresh questions. I weave field recordings of desert walks and cacophonous casinos.
