자연속으로 사라지거나, 적나라하게 자신을 표현하거나. 이중적인 시선을 통해 설치물은 외부에 마감된 거울로 주변자연환경을 반사, 자신을 자연 속으로 사라지게 하거나, 내부에 설치된 조명으로 독창적인 시퀀스를 연출한다.
Working in color, light, space, and form, Phillip K. Smith, III creates
deceptively simple objects of contemplation, transformation, and
interaction. His newest project Reflection Field continues to explore
ideas of colour theory, optics, perception, scale, and technology.
Phillip K Smith, III, a Rhode Island School of Design graduate and
resident of the Coachella Valley, rose to international acclaim last
year with his project Lucid Stead that amalgamated a 70 year old
homesteader shack with mirror, LED lighting, and custom electronics to
create a 24 hour experience in the isolation of Joshua Tree, CA.
Hundreds of people made the arduous trek to see the installation and, as
word spread, Lucid Stead quickly became an international phenomenon
receiving global recognition both online and in print media. Architect
Magazine listed it as one of the "Very Best Projects of 2013" and the
Los Angeles Times named Smith as one of the three "Faces to Watch 2014
in Art" alongside the Hammer Museum's senior curator, Ann Ellegood, and
multiple Venice Biennale participant, artist Gabriel Kuri.
Reflection Field is a monumental installation that consists of five
freestanding volumes of light and mirror scaled as large as 18 feet high
and 17 feet wide. In this installation the series of objects are
arranged to span a diameter of 100 feet. Reflection Field combines the
concepts of Lucid Stead, with the paced, color merging of his Lightworks
series and his recent exhibition at the Museum of Art and History in
Lancaster, CA. By day, the monolithic mirrored volumes of Reflection
Field are prisms of earth and sky, wrapped by the surrounding
environment. By night, they become expansive fields of color that blend
and layer through echoes of reflection. Spaces become simultaneously
infinite and finite, while hues push and pull, saturating and dissolving
the surroundings and periphery into pure colour.
As a result of Lucid Stead, Goldenvoice found interest in Smith's work. When the artist described an idea that was "so big it seemed impossible", Paul Tollett of Goldenvoice, decided to do what was necessary to make it happen. Reflection Field will debut in the artist's home town at Coachella 2014 where it will be experienced by more than 200,000 people over the course of two weeks starting April 11, 2014.
