Merging multiple references of Des Moines, this piece depicts an unreal reflection.
Des Moines landmarks are reflected in the sectioned grid of the iconic Wallace Building and the white letters of the Nomade sculpture are overlaid across the entire composition. The aerial view of the Pappajohn Sculpture Park, as seen from the 41st floor of 801 Grand, is buried under buildings that anchor the skyline while the reflection of the state capitol is distorted as it would be reflected in the windows.
