Reflexion at La Jolla Cove with people

Reflexion was created by ArtBuilds, a collective founded by four University of San Diego Faculty:  Austin Choi-Fitzpatrick (Peace Studies), Diane Hoffoss (Math), Gordon Hoople (Engineering), and Nate Parde (Theater). The piece was the culmination of effort from dozens of individuals, including students, staff, and community members.

With its mirrored columns and individually rotatable prisms, Reflexion is a meditation on the competing, overlapping, distorting, and clarifying roles played by lenses, filters, and frames in contemporary life. Yet, just when all seems lost, Reflexion reminds us of our power — to take control and to change perspectives. Stand between them, and multiple perspectives helps us see the impossible, and perhaps notice what we’ve missed.
