Mark Mothersbaugh is making Ace Hotel’s pool an art installation for Desert Gold. He’s also making this kid an art installation, apparently. Stay gold this weekend, now.
Safe and Gold.

Journey into the alchemical mind of Mark Mothersbaugh — cofounder of Devo, pioneer of flagrant weirdness, maker of children’s music and collector of superannuated musical fire hazards — with the latest installation of Thinking Cap. As our artist-in-residence for Desert Gold 2012 at Ace Hotel & Swim Club, Mr. Mothersbaugh put on a few shows we invited him to do, and a handful of ones we didn’t.
Thinking Cap is a new evolving series by Atelier Ace making inquires into the creative processes of experimental artists, musicians and personalities. Artists all have their rituals for getting into the heat of their energy. Hemingway would stop working when he had a good idea to save some motivation. Gertrude Stein would only work for 30 minutes each day. Mark Mothersbaugh gets up at 3am to draw every morning. Some people need a certain room or a certain outfit or need to get naked. The Thinking Cap, outfitted with a POV camera, captures that process with all the shakes, swoops and cries of victory in real time.
Next up, Sword + Fern. See more posts on our blog, and share something about your creative process with us with #athinkingcap and @acehotel on any social platform. We’ll keep an eye out and send treats to the creators who catch our eye.

First up, Evan B. Harris, one of the first muralists at Ace Hotel Portland, and a maker of great omelettes. Next up, Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo, and in August our friends from Sword + Fern.

Obviously Pussy Riot sourced some of their inspiration from Devo. And who hasn’t? We get up each day and look in the mirror and say “Are we not men?” And when someone says, “No, you are not,” we say “Are we not Pussy Riot?”On that note, the very one and only Mark Mothersbaugh is designing some pool toys for us to use in the pool and wherever we like during Desert Gold. Just one facet of a big, complicated, cool thing we do once a year during Coachella, April 12-21. You can still nab some rooms, and see the full line-up.
