Reflect is integrated into the playground area at Hemisfair Park’s Yanaguana Garden, creating a canopy over a large-scale play structure. The sculpture is a series of stainless-steel ribbon forms suspended from a robust, bent steel tubing frame. Its organic shape harmonizes with the play equipment and the adjacent promenade’s shade structure.

The mirror finish of the ribbons reflects and refracts the surrounding landscape, buildings and, most importantly, the children and adults using the playground. The arrangement of the sculpture creates dappled shade over the playground that changes with the movement of the sun.
