Description: Vertical Ventaglio

Silver rectangles cascade across space in Beverly Pepper's Vertical Ventaglio.  The highly polished exterior surfaces mirror the surrounding environment, while deep blue inner  surfaces absorb the light.  The interplay between light and dark, reflection and absorption, and implied movement and fixed form is engaging and fascinating. 

Walk around the sculpture to experience the way the components reorganize themselves as your position shifts.
