Chris Maluszynski hat die superhässlichen Teppiche in Las Vegas fotografiert, die Teil eines ziemlichen Mindfucks sind, der die Besucher der Stadt zum Spielen bringen soll. Ugly Carpet Las Vegas Mindfuck… hell yeah!
“The carpets definitely play a big part in keeping the town as surreal as it is,” said Maluszynski by e-mail. “Thought has been given to the carpeting by people who want to create this special atmosphere, [one] that defines Vegas as a gambling city.”
That’s a theory backed up by Dave Schwartz, Director of the Center for Gaming Research, at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. Schwartz theorizes that “casino carpet is known as an exercise in deliberate bad taste that somehow encourages people to gamble.”
