Hilton Garden Inn Phoenix Downtown – Custom Piece
Along with the unique framed pieces we featured in our last blog post, this piece was created for the Hilton Garden Inn Phoenix Downtown in Phoenix, Arizona! Layered and dynamic, this large multi-panel piece highlighted the hotels connection to the iconic horror film “Psycho” by Alfred Hitchcock. Many features layer over the back acrylic panels that we printed with an abstraction of a historical photo of the hotel, then the Valley National Bank building. To mimic the cracked glass appearance of the original “Psycho” movie poster we made custom shapes for the acrylic panels giving it a fractured appearance. The top right of the piece showcases a dye-sublimated aluminum print of the original movie poster for “Psycho”. Dye-sublimation was also used for the aluminum printed letters to ‘Bates Motel’ giving the already bold brushed aluminum an illuminated look. To further the illusion of the ‘Bates Motel’ neon sign shown in the film, we custom bent white acrylic tubes and installed them standing off of the aluminum letters.
