Prismatica, an illuminated art exhibit, will return for the 36th Season of the Winter Festival of Lights. Prismatica is a field of twenty-five colourful prisms that pivot on their base, measuring over 2 metres in height. Prismatica will be on display for a limited time – November 30, 2018 to January 31, 2019, only – at the Scotiabank Convention Centre.
The Prismatica prisms are made of panels laminated with a dichronic film that transmit and reflect every colour in the visible spectrum, varying with the position of the light source and the observer. The prisms are mounted on bases containing projectors. As visitors wander among and manipulate the prisms, they will enjoy an infinite interplay of lights and colourful reflections. As the prisms rotate, a variable-intensity soundtrack comprised of bell sounds will play.
