Desert Dreaming

My favorite type of art always brings the surreal to life.   As part of the Desert X exhibition, this installation entitled "Circle of Land and Sky" by Phillip K Smith employs a circle of perfectly spaced geometric reflectors to blend and distort the desert horizon.  The flawlessly smooth metal with its precise 10 degree tilt contrasts starkly with the rugged desert wilderness.  Altogether, the experience is one of waking up in the middle of a strange yet beautiful mirage.
