In approaching the dark-half sphere in Lalexl Devin’s, “Ephemeral Reflection”, it seems quiet and a bit forbidding, contained and limited. From the door, color glows to beacon entrance. All timidness is forgotten when stepping into a bizarre world dominated by a central all-seeing skull that is anatomically deconstructed to reveal not only the expected bone, brain, and eyes, but there is something shockingly unexpected: someone else is inside. Fingers emerge from the eye sockets to give an eirie and haunting juxtaposition. Different views like mirrors surround the center that is held together by gears.

What is most perplexing are the anvils that sprouted wings and fly around: the stationary contrasted with the mobile. Symbolically, an anvil can mean stability, weight, craft, process, or tool. This surreal world turns the real upside down by juxtaposing impossibilities. Perhaps mankind has become overtaken by tools and process, to the point of disintegration. Is this a cautionary tale? Have people become trapped by their own inventions?
