We finally got the chance for a small family getaway this past weekend. I’ve been dying to get away after this very stressful and cooped up season of quarantine. Palm Springs is always on our list for the summer and I never go without a heavy dose of taking in the fantastic art and architecture of the area. I did a little research and found that Deep in Palm desert there’s a newer installation that was recently erected in the city of Coachella. The piece is titled ETHEREA by artist Edoardo Tresoldi And we originally shown at the Coachella music festival in 2018. I remember seeing photos of this artwork from the event all over Instagram and was taken with it. When I heard one of the piece a was permanently installed nearby I knew I had to see it. It didn’t disappoint. The piece is somehow light and heavy at the same time. It has a feeling of Impermanence and a elicits a delicate visual blur like a desert mirage. The artist imagined it as a place to meditate and as a place where architecture and the sky meet. I met up with local Palm Springs photographer Bridgit Valdez to shoot with this magical piece. I selected a summer outfit in all neon tones with a laser cut fabric that reminded me of the texture of the art piece. I love the contrast and pop of the results!
