OBJECT PERMANENCE is a visual narrative of the legendary westward journey along Route 66 to the California Coast.

 

The artwork is sited in the lobby of the new Marriott Hotel along Route 66 in downtown Santa Monica. It juxtaposes video shot along the historic route with data-driven animations tied to the ebb and flow of the Pacific Ocean where Route 66 meets the coast at the Santa Monica Pier just blocks away.
