Bent Parallel envelopes viewers in light, continuing Smith’s ongoing dialogue with color theory, optics, scale, and technology. Appearing as two angled color-field walls, the hinge-like structure merges surfaces to engender a perception of shifting and blending. At the center of the bend, there is a third, material-less, zero-thickness plane that mixes the adjacent colors and seems to extend the physical bounds of the space. The resulting environment appears simultaneously infinite and finite.
