Prismatica consists of an arrangement of pyramid-shaped crystals affixed to an LCD screen and illuminated with programmed geometric animations. These animated patterns are precisely mapped to the vertices of the crystals, activating them individually and in formation. The animations are further refracted through the geometry of the crystals in accordance with the shifting perspective of the observer, which in turn alters the way the illuminations appear and interact with reflections of surrounding lights within the space.
Prismatica acts as an extension of the visual and perceptual experimentations in my Enigmatica installations.
