Kristin Posehn: Inverted Dome

Inverted Dome is an inquiry into the dynamics of light, technology, and perception generated by public architecture. The exhibition’s central feature is an installation that reimagines the U.S. Capitol Dome as an inverted, open, and almost unrecognizable structure made of mirror, reflecting back both the environment and itself.
