Reed’s work reflects a strong belief in sculpture as art that must be conceived and experienced in full three-dimensional space. A formalist, he often uses forms to activate space, particularly in public work, which is on a scale that people can enter and physically engage. His public projects also frequently incorporate landscaping, lighting, water, and such functional elements as sculptural seating, in order to fully compose a site and make it viable at any hour and in all seasons.
