A video journey to Echo Park’s colorful Randyland

ECHO PARKThe Phantasma Gloria, which is composed of hundreds of colorful, water-filled, glass bottles, is perhaps the neighborhood’s most well known and photographed piece of folk art. Now, the artwork and its creator, Randlett Lawrence, is the subject of a new video titled Randyland by Matthew Kaundart.

The sculpture, draped across Lawrence’s Lemoyne Street home, features an abstracted image of the Virgen de Guadalupe that reflects and refracts the sun. “This is my Madonna made out of the sun itself,” he said.
