Lights, camera, action at Fashion Valley Mall

Out & About

I promised you a video of the beautiful new water fountain at Fashion Valley Mall. I have that for you, but I also have a video of the beautiful new benches throughout the mall. You’re probably thinking, “I can understand a video of a water fountain, but a video of benches? Russel’s had too many margaritas.”

Well, they follow, they do. Watch the water flowing over the glass panels in the first video because it flows at different rates and at different times over different panels. Coupled with the color, it’s pretty awesome. And let me know what you think about the video of the benches…………

    The benches are very cool. It would be great if they worked like mood rings, so when you sat on one, it changed color to match your mood. 🙂
    Don’t you think someone will find them irresistible to write all over though? I think I would have to assign each one a security guard!

      Ha! This is Fashion Valley Mall. They have a ring of security guards around the mall whose only purpose is to keep out children and the homeless, in other words, those most at risk for destroying property…………….LOL

      This mall has so many security personnel that it’s state headlines whenever something happens. A couple of years ago, a man and woman drove their car through the mall, smashed into Macy’s, robbed the store, and took off. Of course, they were all over a billion security cameras and got caught.

    I was too curious and watch the benches first, loved them! The fountain of this town’s Plaza does something like that, it doesn’t have panels but it changes color and I think it sort of dances. Lots of wedding photos set there. I’m gonna have to record it one day 🙂

      Sadly I didn’t think to look around when I was there. I suspect that benches are simply sturdy but hollow white plastic with lights inside the bench and wiring come up from the ground.

      The mall knew you would be. There’s a couple of signs explaining that people should not touch the water–definitely not play in it–because it is gray water, recycled by the mall.

          It’s probably rather high with all those panes. The thinner the layer of water, the more rapidly the water evaporates. However, I suspect the number of people flushing toilets throughout the mall compensates very well. Can’t see that there would be a lack of gray water in that place…….LOL
