A Mirrored Fence that Changes with the Seasons
Alyson Shotz is an American artist based in Brooklyn, New York. She graduated with a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1987 and received her MFA from the University of Washington in 1991.
In her artwork entitled Mirror Fence (2003), Shotz installed a 138 ft x 36 x 4 inches (42.06 m x 91.44 x 10.16 cm) fence made from acrylic, wood, aluminum and ‘hardware’. The mirrored finish means the fence reflects the surrounding landscape and changes with the seasons.
The installation can be viewed at the Storm King Art Center, a sculpture park located in the Lower Hudson Valley in the state of New York.
