Changing Patterns

At first glance the three 28-foot-high metal-riveted wooden doors appear to struggle to stand in place, leaning against each other for support. As you approach, your understanding of the precariously perched structure changes over to an image of balance and strength. You realize you are standing in front of a work of art. And then once again your awareness shifts as you’re invited to step inside and discover that this three-story tall structure is a giant walk-in kaleidoscope. The sculpture—The Doors by Donald Lipski—is located in downtown Scottsdale, Arizona.

When you stand inside, the mirrored walls give you a sense of multiple reflections of yourself. The opening overhead creates the optical illusion of a geodesic dome. You’re reminded that the meaning of any situation or of any set of circumstances is found in the frame within which you view it. Actively engaging in the artistic process gives you the opportunity to experience a similar sense of rethinking what you see. You open from the inside out and create space for growth.

Without reflection, we go blindly on our way, creating more
unintended consequences, and failing to achieve anything useful.
