On a roulette table that once belonged to the Golden Gate casino in Las Vegas, Solinas created the Rio Buenaventura, a game which name refers to a mythical river that the first maps of the American West situated from the Rocky Mountains to the bay of San Francisco. With the artist as the dealer, the 7 players go from adventures to stories through images, objects and words she gathered. From Sedona to Silicon Valley, from Santa Fe to Los Angeles, from spirituality to artifical intelligence, with more than 50 specific people she interviewed, Solinas shares her own personal journey into the ideas that are inventing the identites of tomorrow.
