50,000 Beds

Hotel Rooms Become Overnight Stars New York Times LINDA YABLONSKY 7/8/07

“’50,000 Beds,’ a collaborative video project involving 45 artists, 30 Connecticut hotels and 3 of the state’s art institutions: the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, Real Art Ways in Hartford and Artspace in New Haven. Conceived and designed by Chris Doyle, a Brooklyn artist whose own videos give insensate objects like lawn chairs and hot dogs what appear to be active sex lives, the project represents a new wrinkle in cultural tourism.”
