Olympus Mons Hotel is the imagining of a structure built on Mars for a wide-variety of possible uses, to include: Colonization, terraforming, and AI development safety. This work was done as a way of easing my mind after my divorce in 2008 and was painted in Riverside, California. Today, it sits behind my desk and finds my imagination from time to time.
