The Totems, Los Angeles, US
“The Totems” is a project installed permanently on the roof garden of the Pacific Design Center. The totems are a study of prismatic shapes made of different sized facets. The prismatic totems reflect light in different ways through each facet. Each totem has different tonal variations of the same color on each facet that reflects light and the environment.
The shapes are abstracted by the color tonal changes, deceiving the eye and mystifying the perception of the totems between two and three-dimensional space.
