Even Yoko Ono Can’t Ruin Glorious Video Art Display at Cosmopolitan Las Vegas

Here’s something to add to your list of things to do in Las Vegas, and be sure to bring along your eyeballs. All of them.

In the Cosmopolitan’s registration area, you’ll find a gorgeous set of columns decked out with video displays. The video art shown on the columns looks a little like this.

Visuals so spectacular, it’ll make you gawk like an Assemblyman at a sorority carwash. Feel free to use that in your ads, Cosmopolitan.

You can’t really get a sense of the gloriousness in a mere photograph, of course. So, because we have the generous nature of a Dominican nun, we snagged some video of the video for your edification and to kill some time at work.

Live dangerously and go for the 1080p high-def video.

Pretty amazing stuff, don’t you think?

The Cosmo recently upgraded the 408 video displays on its columns and behind its registration desk. Each of the columns has an astonishing 100 million pixels each. We know because we counted.

The polished floors and mirrored ceilings intensity the spectacularity. Spiced rum also can’t hurt.

The Cosmopolitan says 100 new computers send content to the bezel-less, smart displays. They are clearly smarter than we are, as this Las Vegas blog wouldn’t know a bezel if it tripped on one.

The big news lately, and we probably should have put “news” in quotation marks, is the Cosmo’s video screens (including the hotel’s 65-foot digital marquee) recently began showing a video art piece by none other than Yoko Ono. Yes, that Yoko Ono.

Let’s just say you probably won’t want to make a special trip for professional coattail-rider Ono’s video art.

To get an idea of what Yoko Ono’s video art looks like, just just imagine the default computer wallpaper for the Windows XP operating system. Now, superimpose the phrase “Imagine Peace” on that in 24 languages. No, really, that’s the whole thing.

Yoko Ono’s video presentation is very calming. Then again, so is being shot with a tranquilizer dart.

Here’s a peek at some of the best work in Yoko Ono’s career, mainly because it doesn’t involve her singing.

Thankfully, most of the video art displayed at Cosmopolitan was done by an actual video artist, Yorgo Alexpoulos. The New York-based artist’s work is actually worthy of the eye-popping technology said to have 12 times the resolution of a single HD channel.

And you think it’s rough keeping up with the fingerprints on your smartphone.

The video displays in the Cosmo’s registration area are truly a feast for the eyes, and a great reason to visit the hotel. As if you needed another reason. It’s the Cosmopolitan.

    The Cosmo is frickin’ spectacular.

    In a town full of amazing I still walk into the Cosmo on a weekend night and just feel my jaw hit the floor. It’s on another level for me from any other place on the Strip.

    Here’s to hoping the new ownership stays the course with the place and keeps it as distinctive and classy as it is now.
