A passer-by photographs 'Projection', a public art project of French installation artist Vincent Lamouroux, drawing attention with everything painted white to a forgotten Los Angeles landmark, Bates Motel, on April 26, 2015A French artist has completely covered a derelict Los Angeles motel -- palm trees and all -- with a dazzling coat of white paint to create an enormous, ghostly artwork. Called "Projections," the piece by Vincent Lamouroux was publicly unveiled Sunday in LA's trendy Silver Lake neighborhood, and instantly became a local attraction, with fascinated passersby stopping to snap images of the motel. Lamouroux used an environmentally friendly limewash to cover the so-called Bates Motel, including several towering palm trees and the fence around the rundown property. "The idea behind this project was to cover the entire building and to think about the building as a giant sculpture (on) the scale of the urban landscape ... with this idea we could provoke ... a strong change in order to create some attention," said Lamouroux, a Paris resident, who has made frequent trips to Los Angeles over the past 15 years.
