    Description

    Acute Triangle is a sculptural construction and architectural light box built with wood, paint, mirrors, and dimmable light sources. Using mirrors, reflections, and glowing amber light, Acute Triangle features an infinitely receding ovular ring nested in a receding triangular space. Like a glowing porthole into an alternate reality, Emig's work mesmerizes the senses and takes the viewer on a journey through space while exploring our perceptions
