“Stretching a quarter mile down Laguna Beach, Phillip K. Smith III‘s art installation ¼ Mile Arc created a glittering spectacle along the sand. 250 stainless steel posts, polished to a mirrored sheen, were spaced evenly in a gentle arc along the coastline. Over a period of 4 days, curious beach goers and art lovers discovered how the light and color of sand and surf illuminated the poles.”
This incredible sculpture installation was created by artist Phillip K Smith III, in the deserts of Joshua Tree, California. By replacing the old weathered horizontal siding with strips of long reflective mirrors, he transformed the neglected and crumbling structure into a seemingly miraculous optical illusion.
