Prisma 1666 by Wonwei


"The installation focuses on the light refraction properties of a prism, allowing the user to experience these properties by interacting with various colors, angles, and shapes being projected onto a group of prisms."

"In 1666, Sir Isaac Newton conducted a famous experiment that has been widely considered as a landmark discovery in the study of optics and color theory. Inspired by this discovery, PRISMA 1666 is an interactive light installation consisting of 15 triangular crystal blocks distributed randomly on a clean white surface. The projection of colorful graphics is refracted and dispersed by these crystal blocks, creating a fascinating visual experience and ambiance. The installation enables interaction with the projected colors, angles, and shapes through a touch interface, creating an opportunity to experiment with these elements like Isaac Newton did so many years before us." -Wonwei.


The way the light gets distorted is amazing though it would be far more interesting if numerous people had control over it and it becomes competitive, chaotic and almost war-like.
