Prismatica: Public Art Installation by RAW
Prismatica is an astonishing public art installation by Canadian architecture studio RAW. The installation includes 50 prisms made from panels laminated with a dichroic film – this allows the panels to transmit and reflect every color in the visible spectrum.
“The six and a half-foot-tall structures are spread throughout the Place des Festivals where visitors can walk around all sides of the rotating kaleidoscopes. At night, they display soft-but-colorful lights that illuminate those that are passing by.
Contained in their bases are projectors that create an infinite interplay of lights and reflections. And, as the prisms rotate, a soundtrack of bells play, too.”Art Posted on March 15, 2015
