In “Boomerang,” her first Bay Area show, Melissa McGill, a young New Yorker, has stealthily trans­formed the classy Pacific Heights living room that comprises Anthony Meier Fine Arts. (The show contin­ues through Feb.26 at 3007 Jack­son St.)

At first you might think that the installation consists solely of a large formless thing (made of plas­teline) on the floor that seems to emit strange sounds, but closer ex­amination discloses 34 small mir­rored glass blobs, the artist has distributed throughout the room—in the moldings, wrapped around a corner, hovering just be­low the ceiling. The fact that you might occupy the room for a while without noticing the work under­scores how unconscious most of us are of our environment.
