Prisma 1666 lets users experience the light refraction properties of prisms.

Emma Hutchings

This art installation, a collaboration between Wonwei and Shanghai-based design studio Super Nature Design, is entitled Prisma 1666. It consists of 15 triangular crystal blocks, or prisms, distributed randomly on a white surface. Two projectors display various colors, angles and shapes onto the prisms, which are then refracted and dispersed. Users can experiment with them by interacting with the projections through a touch-screen interface.

Prisma 1666 was inspired by Sir Isaac Newton’s experiments and discoveries in the study of optics and color theory. It was exhibited at the 2011 International Science and Art Exhibition in Shanghai where it received the Best Creative Design Award. Take a look at the installation in the video below:
