The installation appears as a glowing, mysterious sliver of color from the street. The cave-like space is a result of blending four shapes into a topological environment. The walls of the gallery are lined with mirror to transform the spatial figure into a field of reflections. All material used in the installation will be recycled in the construction of an artist residence in New Jersey designed by Leong Leong.
