Sarah Oppenheimer is an artist who works at the intersection of fine art, architecture, and engineering. Her mind-boggling installations are meant to disrupt the way we think of interior spaces through the use of mathematically based optical allusions — pieces that are equal parts M.C. Escher sketches and Alice in Wonderland. Commissioned by Pérez Art Museum Miami (1103 Biscayne Blvd., Miami) to build a piece for the Herzog & de Meuron-designed museum, Oppenheimer created S-281913 — two architectural switches made of rotating glass elements that alternate in brightness and transparency. The piece uses the building's electrical grid and natural light cascading over Biscayne Bay to alter the viewers' frame of reference, seeming to bring distant objects into close proximity and vice versa. The result is a masterwork blending the fields of sculpture, architecture, and engineering — a perfect blend to kick off arts season at one of the city's most esteemed institutions. Oppenheimer's S-281913, presented by JP Morgan Chase, will be on view this Friday through April 30, 2017. PAMM is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, and Friday through Sunday and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday. PAMM is closed Wednesday. Admission is $16 for adults; $12 for students, seniors, and youth ages 7 to 18; and free for museum members, children 6 and younger, and active U.S. military. Visit pamm.org.
