This kaleidorama comprises two abutting mirror panels with a flat screen fanning out between them at a right angle. The entire structure is mounted perpendicular to the wall. The front side is open to the viewer, while the projection screen covers the rear. The mirror panels form the illusion of a pentagonal, reflective interior space. On the floor of the adjacent water basin, three mirror strips refract the spotlight’s beam into parallel red, green, and blue lines. As the water basin is agitated, the wave wobbles and reshapes the lines: discrete shapes divide into complex, layered coronas of light and color derived from the movement of water.
