Broad bands of coloured light crawl across the walls of this circular room, wrapping the visitors in a vibrant, ever-changing light installation.
The source of the light is a low circular construction, over three-metres in diameter, at the centre of the space. Suspended beneath the dark top, panes of coloured glass and shutters turn steadily on motors. The panes of glass are dichroic, colour-effect-filter glass, a material that reflects certain wavelengths of light while allowing others to pass through it. As a result, the glass appears to be a different colour depending on the angle at which the light hits it and the position from which it is seen. As the glass panels shift, the colours overlap and create tones that are not present in their pure forms. The light passing through the rotating panes generates a complex and ever-shifting display of colour on the gallery walls. This disorienting curtain of moving light incorporates the walls into the artwork, transforming the exhibition space from a mere container for the art into an object of attention in itself.
