‘Reflect Space’ is an exploration of human perception as inspired by a series of studies done with the behavior of mirrors. By placing these mirrors strategically into a historically preserved site in Downtown LA, visitors experience bodily displacement and thus an alternate reality. Via a series of three ‘perceptual devices,’ visitors see the street activity taking place both indoors and on the upper floor of the bank; they then encounter a space in which they are faced with three doors, all of which are superficial. Finally, the overall experience culminates in the largest space, in which the grand barrel-vault skylight—which is original to the bank—appears to have been moved down to ground level.
