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.
