Phillip K Smith III's monumental installation Bent Parallel envelopes viewers in immersive reflective light continuing the artist's ongoing dialogue with color theory, optics, scale, and technology. Appearing as two intersecting, color-field walls, this hinge-like structure merges surfaces to engender a perceptual atmosphere that shifts and blends colored light. This installation creates a third, material-less, zero-thickness plane that mixes the adjacent colors and extends the physical bounds of the immediate space. The resulting environment appears simultaneously infinite and finite, while hues push and pull and saturate and dissolve the surroundings, encouraging us to focus on the interaction and movement of pure color.
