Using 16mm archive footage, Luciano Piazza presents a Lego city built with small pieces –with neon lights, casinos, and Elvis impersonators– and reveals the essence of the City of Sin. 

Las Vegas in 16 Parts openly exhibits its program: to portray a city using fragments. Like a mosaic, those portions build this urban symphony through a precise and thorough observation that equally focuses on marriage rites and neon lights on the sky. Objects gain a new dimension while subjects are objectified, as if they were the actors in a dance that keeps the city alive. Through consumption rituals and variables of desire, the body turns into merchandise and the space gains a cinematographic nature, as if the film printed a spectral version of itself on the surface of the film.
